I wrote the Finding Inspiration in Nature post in two parts, the latest about animals, for that is the subject matter about which I write. Perhaps you, too, will find inspiration in my blog post. Find a segment of it below then continue reading the post at the Writing Wranglers & Warriors website. I hope you enjoy it!
