Day 19: A PET Peeve
I came to a stunning conclusion today: I’ve neglected to include pets in any of my fictional work. Given that my YA novel focuses on nature, family, and spirits, how could I have missed such a vital element?
I am a firm believer in the healing power of a beloved pet – primarily canines or felines. I grew up with dogs and cats seem to love me. They provide me with love, comfort, and companionship though times of joy and sorrow.
I’m still baffled at how I overlooked such an important aspect of family. Today, I jotted down ideas of how to include these beloved animals in my novel without it coming off as forced.
Inspiration truly makes its presence known in the quietest of moments.
