Yes. Cupcake has the day off, and it’s my turn to speak. Finally. Oh and yes, I know it’s not Monday.
Can a baby be a private investigator? Can an extinct dodo bird hatch in the woods behind your house? Can colored pencils make everything you draw come to life? YES! If you’re a writer, you can create worlds where these things happen. If you’re a reader, you can visit those worlds whenever you want.
When you create a piece of writing, it’s a chance for dreams, imaginings, and everyday events in your life to grow, develop, and become complete, brand new stories. All you need is the tiniest seed of an idea and a big dose of your imagination. Ideas can pop up anywhere, from a potato chip bag that looks like a parrot to a fat spider sitting in a web on your front porch. If you look at the world through the eyes of a writer, your imagination will always be busy changing what you see and hear into a creative new idea.
I think it’s time for Cupcake to get back to work, now. I don’t want her getting lazy….
Uh-Oh. It may be too late!
