Life as a Tree: April IWSG


What does a tiny tree have to do with writer insecurity? Maybe nothing. 

This little maple planted itself in an idle flower pot and spent the summer growing into a for-real-looking tree. It certainly wasn't as big as the huge tree that most likely spawned it, but it was obviously a tree and seemed to be perfectly content in its miniscule piece of the planet.  
Come fall, its leaves turned and fell leaving nothing but a barren stick in a pot of dirt. Its survival was questionable. Outside, its roots might freeze. Inside, it might might not hibernate properly. 
But here it is again this spring. Buds at the top, a new leaf at the base. Odds were against it, but here it is: still a tree.  Probably doesn't have the proper sense to question its legitimacy as a tree.  

April 7 question - Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work? Nope. I'm not out to intentionally ruffle feathers or break any molds. I'm a bit like the little tree, content in the pot God planted me in. Sometimes I lose my sap and hibernate for a bit, but then the sun warms and I'm out doing my growing thing.
