Books,and Writing, and Blogs,Oh my!
E.L. Doctorow once said, "Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia." With writing, you can do anything. Be anything. You can go as far as your mind allows you to. Nothing is off limits. Want to be a wizard who turns into a mermaid when they touch water? Go for it! Want to live in a castle in the middle of a volcano? Why not! Want to talk to animals and curse the jerks at school? I believe in you!
The point is, writing has no limitations. YOU have the power to create anything. You could go from fighting demons in a cave somewhere in the middle of Europe to drinking tea with the Queen in Buckingham Palace in a matter of pages. It's your world. All of the choices are in your hands. You are both the source of creation and destruction.
There is no good or bad time to write. Just sit down and let your words bleed onto the paper until you have what you're looking for. You may not always get it right on the first try, but the more you write, the better you will be.
