Writers see things others often miss

Writers see the world differently. Every voice we hear, every face we see, every hand we touch could become story fabric.

Just yesterday I ran into:
--a man with a faint chicken pox scar on his cheek
--a woman who showed more gum than teeth when she smiled
--a wrinkled hand covered with sun spots

Writers are observers. We're thinkers and dreamers. We weave our real world into our fictional world in a way that brings our stories to life.


  1. So, so true. I will come across some of my notes about people and wow it is so fun to read how I've noticed people. :) Great post!

  2. All so true! Anyone could become a muse.
