Stories are Magic
Stories should be magic. Not like wizards and fairies and things.
People who write stories, good stories, aren’t authors; they’re magicians.
Magicians who fabricate other worlds for us to dwell in, even if it’s only for a few moments.
Stories are magic. There’s no prerequisite: it doesn’t matter how old you are, or what you look like.
Stories can work their magic on anyone, just so long as you’ll let them.
