Books are the Stairway to the Imagination

June 19th, 2014, 3pm

It was 25°C. The breeze was gentle.

I’m a writer which means that my mind incessantly creates images and stories begging to be put onto paper. Once in a while, an idea crops up which seems randomly stuck, in need of a good “flush” onto the page, so-to-speak.

Those are the moments that I cherish most.

Characters launched on adventure landscape the day as my fingers try to keep up with their antics, sometime in the dead of night but definitely during the most inopportune times. Mine’s a life that is rich beyond measure, one that affords travel into undiscovered lands and salty seas, time spent with pirates or princes, magicians or queens - all contained only within the boundaries of my own imagination.

Life for me is sacrosanct - I’m a writer.

Shu and David Wade said thanks.
