The love of writing

I just finished reading Library Mouse by Daniel Kirk and got a bit choked up at the end.  Yes, it is a picture book, but the message at the end really spoke to me.  Being an author is a roller coaster ride of emotions.  It is great to be reminded why I started writing in the first place--because I had a story to tell--because I love to tell stories and weave new possibilities.  I love to create stories and enjoy hearing people laugh at a line or staying up all night reading them.  It is the best feeling in the world. To all those who love to write, keep writing!  We all have a story, even those of us who don't care to write it down.  Our imagination is a beautiful window to the "What if..."  Imagination isn't just dreaming up magic and castles, it is thinking of new possibilities and asking questions.  Things we do when thinking of science as well as in the arts.  So whether you love art or science, imagination and wonder is the key to discovery.
