Today’s Writing Muse: Nature’s Claw

Do you need some inspiration for writing? Do you need a story starter or something to keep your novel going? Take a stroll outside and see what you can find in nature…

As I was walking home after my jog the other day, I noticed this branch (left) sticking out of the bushes. Out of the corner of my eye, it looked just like a make-believe claw from a tree in an enchanted forest. (Or if you are into science fiction, it could belong to an alien… Your pick.)

This, my friends, is today’s muse. Grab your pens or your computers. Ready? Set? WRITE!
