Awakening Skills

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m reading Call of the Wild right now. It’s always interesting to me to see how human minds interpret animal thoughts. Most of the time this is done in a comedic fashion for children’s movies. But with Call of the Wild, Buck has very close to a serious adult man’s voice and thought process. He changes a lot in the first two chapters of the book and learns a new, harsher world quickly. I very much like the way it is described that some of his skills came from his ancestors. They were deep inside him all along waiting to be needed again. Write a scene in which your character has an experience like this. A skill comes to her naturally because a situation calls for it. How does your character explain the skill? Is it similar to other familiar skills just applied in a different way?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
