Inspiration

on June 30, 2014

Today’s blog post is a challenge from The Daily Post to write a story on what inspires you to write, in just 50 words.
This won’t take long.Enjoy!

Years ago, before committing words to paper, she chewed pencils, made shapes from clouds, tidied her room, paired socks.
Now the screen is wiped of prints, wiped again, battery checked. Clouds roll on by.
A feather drifts gently through the open window and lands beside her.
So it begins.
