The Writer’s Path
Like most aspiring writers, you probably didn’t think at a certain age, like 7 years old for instance, that you wanted to take your imaginary places in your mind to pen and paper. These were your secret longings; these fantasy images, stories, and playmates that lived in your imagination.
These things, when you are 9 years old, were real. They lived, they breathed. The magical Jinn of your imagination tells you of adventures that once taken through the woods down a secret path will lead you to hidden wonders like dragons and princesses in towering castles.
These thoughts, when you were 12 years old, like knowing the Jinn would warn you of witches and golems that walk at night to take you far away, never to return, should you get lost in the forest as you prepare to walk down that darkened path. Now, at last, you finally take that path, the writer’s journey to the hidden wonders you still seek and all the perils along that road, waiting for you there.
