Bulbs can become flowers year after year. Look at Beth's recent blogs to see the beauty and Magic of Mother Nature!
We start with an idea, a character, or a situation. Some writers face a blank piece of paper, while others stare at a computer screen. The magic that begins in the mind of a person can spin into tales of all kinds.
As a child I created the pretend games we played. I made up stories to entertain the other kids. Why was I the one to make up characters and situations? Who knows? Children have pretend tea parties and talk to their toys. Some children have imaginary friends, while others do not. Are these friends imaginary or do adults and other children just not see them?
I think we can make our own magic just as some of us create stories. Artists of all kinds create visual images. Inventors create the magic that allows me to touch little white keys and see words on a lighted screen of my laptop and then send this message over invisible waves or whatever that make up the Internet.
Imagine it and share it, if you can.
What is your magic? How have you helped it along?
Some folks consider time spent on Facebook to be wasted time. I found this idea there. Do you have an opinion about spending time with social media?
