The Fragile Magic of Writing

Writing is fragile magic. It is a moment in time where you sit down, tap into the divine within you and create an entire world out of something as simple as words. Putting your fingers to the keyboard, pen to paper is a moment of alchemy where you transform everything you have ever experienced, read, heard about or dreamed and breathe life into it. You are the creator. You give it form.

It takes the best of ourselves to write, but you can’t do it without your dark side, either. The worst of whatever lies within. It takes honesty to create credible lies that people want to read. As spider webs are tough enough to snare a fly, remember that they are not strong enough to stand up to the intrusion of a human passing through. Such is time spent writing. It’s a sacred act, this transubstantiation. Protect it. Keep it sacred. Close the door and create.
