What if books are magic and writers are magicians?
What if the stories we write become real, somewhere, somehow? What if the characters we create are born and as we write their stories, they’re living them? What if the worlds we create are real realities that have yet to be discovered? What if every time we set the pen to the page, a new life, a new story is born somewhere out there and we don’t even know it? What if writers have the ability to create something with just their imaginations and a pen? What if that is their magic?
No, not “what if”… Writers /are/ magicians. Because every character we create /is/ real, a soul without a body. They feel and they think and they react and they interact with other real people and they change lives. Because every story we imagine is real and it’s happening somewhere to someone, both within and without the pages of a book. Because every world we create /is/ real and your readers experience them as vividly as if they were standing on that soil themselves. Because every time you set your pen to the page, magic flows from your veins and spills like ink onto the blank pages, weaving lives, worlds, emotions, and stories together into a new reality. Because writers /do/ have the ability to create something with just their imaginations and a pen, with sheer willpower and means, with creativity and striving. That is their magic.
