When you write fiction, your greatest talent is your imagination. Oh, it helps to be a wordsmith–the ability to form sentences that tell your story, but without that all important imagination, there’s not much of a story to tell. See, imagination creates characters. It tells you what their names are, what they look like, where they’ve been and where they’re going. It describes where they live and what goes on in their world. Imagination takes you from the introduction of time, place, and character and fills in all the words that follows whatever adventure you send your characters on. The Universe knows this.
It’s quite simple, dear Silver.
Wherever your thoughts can go, you can go.
And I’ll meet you there.

Life, Silver, is actually a “workshop” on how to take your thoughts to new places.
And that’s something else writers use: life. Their own and others. But the thing is, imagination and words take us places. And as we writers trip along, we take others with us. Our readers enjoy the trip, too. We hope. Isn’t that the whole reason for telling stories? And that’s what makes a writer–that urge, no, I take that back, it’s more than an urge, it’s a need to tell the stories our imagination plants in our brains. So, writers, where are you going today? And readers, where will your favorite authors take you?
