I apologize for the late post. I try to post at least once a week, really I do. But…with the kids back in school I began a remodeling project at home. Me. I’ll tell ya, Bob the Builder I am not. Time did get the best of me.
Anyway, after scrambling my mind for something awesome and inspiring to write about, I decided to follow some sort of theme for the month.
My theme for September is…Fantasy.
It helps that I posted my pics last week.
My very first manuscript, written when I was seventeen, was an urban fantasy piece. Fantasy, for me, means being lifted into another world where not everything is what it seems. When a character enters a fantastical realm they are often plunged into unbelievable circumstances.
It is the writer's responsibility to make sure the reader believes.
I was made a believer by the movie realm: ET, Star Wars, Krull and countless others. Countless times I waited to be swept into an adventure that would include swords, magical artifacts, light sabers and faraway places.
Then I grew up. But nothing changed.
Only now I don’t have to wait to be swept into an adventure. I can read about it and write about it with hopes of transforming the next generation into believers.
What turned you into believers?
