Social Media Image—What Adds Depth to Your Life, adds Depth to Your Writing

As I begin this new year, my thoughts turn to ways to make my life more meaningful. And it occurs to me that adding depth to my life will also add depth to my writing—not just through the richness of experience—although that's huge. But if I allow my characters to experience the same kind of richness that I seek, my stories will have an added color and depth.

What parallels do you see in living a life of depth and richness in your writing?

    1. Alycia, it's a tiny terrarium suspended in the air. It's only about 3-4 inches across. I took the picture in the Conservatory at the Biltmore. It was an entire world in a tiny glass globe!
