Even if you're not from around "these here parts" (the technical term), if you have an internet connection, you've probably heard of him.
It's that little bird that flew into a Bernie Sanders campaign rally and become an internet sensation.
Part of that was coincidence - a bird flying into the right place at the right time.
Part of it was Senator Sanders being able to think on his feet and see the potential in the moment - and his campaign staff's ability to turn that little moment into something much bigger.
I'm sure you see those moments in your own life, and in your writing, all the time - where something small and seemingly insignificant can be turned into a metaphor for the much bigger picture.
What are some of your favorite examples of that? (a moment that you were able to make into so much more) and did you go into that piece of writing intending to expand it or did it just "sort of happen" and you went with it?
What was YOUR "Birdie Sanders" and how did you make the most of it?
