Cue the Deer
It's like that scene in "Funny Farm" when Chevy Chase and his wife are trying to make their little eccentric town look like a scene out of a Norman Rockwell painting so they can sell their house. At one point, they 'cue the deer' to run across the yard by the pond. In the end, they wind up so enraptured with what they've created, they decided not to sell and stay.
As authors, we have many opportunities to 'cue the deer'. If we need a snowy day...wa la...we have a snowy day. If we need a deer to make an appearance...bibbity boppity boo...there he is. It's actually kind of fun to wield that kind of power. As a writer, I can bring to life any kind of setting, characters, and situations that I want. Crazy isn't it?
And isn't it even more amazing when Mother Nature gives us something even more awe-inspring than we could ever create?
Until next time,
