Beginning

Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

It's All About The Magic!

Flipendo2.jpg

     As writers, we realize that writing really isn't magic; it is hard work.  We want our readers to feel that it may seem like a magical and mysterious process.  In fiction writing we make the implausible, plausible.  We create a freshly imagined world that is both exhilarating and exhausting for us in its process. 

     Writers have an individual voice in their writing, they are writing from their own heart and soul.  Writing causes a change in the consciousness in the writer and an opening in the consciousness of the reader.  Both the writer and the reader relish in the anticipation of what will come in the story. 

     Set your pencils to paper and begin writing.  Discover the magic in your writing.  If done right the end result will be magical.  It is all about the magic!

Maeve, one of the most exciting discoveries of setting out on this writing journey this year has been discovering magic in my own life. Thank you for these thoughts.

A very inspiring post Maeve. There's nothing better from a readers point of view than being drawn into a good story, it is magic entering another worlds and other people's lives each time you pick the book up to read.I'm always quite sad when I finish a good book. To have the imagination to write them would be every reader's dream.

Making it look easy is key, enjoying the process is our secret.

Love this. Needs to look like magic at the end, and if it doesn't... it's not ready. :)
