Exactly like that.

So there is a robin's nest over the light at our back door. We are delighted by this, but already, the deck is very messy. There is a huge pile of dead grasses and things underneath the nest - at least twice as much grass as appears to have been used to build the nest.

I was describing this to my neighbour.

"Huh", he said. "That sounds just like writing a novel."

A robin put up a nest in much the same place at my in-laws. And that is a great analogy to writing! :)

You have a very wise neighbor.
