Stories have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Memories of my mom reading to me are some of my most cherished. Being swept away to adventures that took form in my mind was, and is, my favorite form of magic. At five years old I came to the moment that is burned into my mind. Finally, I was to learn how to translate the black and white symbols into words. Slowly those symbols began to make sense, until I could read the stories I so loved.

What is creativity? We all have a general idea about it but it's one of those words that just have so much meaning that it is hard to define but this article explains it pretty well. I would try to explain creativity in my own words but that would take forever and confuse you, so just read this instead.

Do you prefer to read a physical book or an E-book? I personally have read from both and prefer to read long books (typically over 400 pages) on my Kindle but read shorter books (under 400 pages) in a paperback. Although I do enjoy reading with the lights off and with a Kindle or Nook or whatever you prefer, that is possible. I can snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy a nice read.

I have never met Neil Gaiman, but through his words I have come to know him. His novels and short stories take me to other worlds and into the extraordinary lives of every day people. As a writer, his stories inspire me to reach beyond the safe and comfortable and write every crazy idea that wiggles its way into my mind. And pushs me to be a little braver about showing those stories to others.

Words are powerful, especially when they come from someone that you care for dearly. Or maybe there are just a few words that you love to say because of the way they sound or maybe because of the way it feels when they fly out of your mouth.
