Imagination

The dictionary defines imagination as “the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses,” and “the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.”

What does this mean to a writer? It means to unleash the mind, creating thoughts that are connected with the senses. You make your own story! I find writing short stories that connect to the outer world…out of my world…into the minds and imagination of others the greatest challenge I have undertaken in my life.

WordPress.com has been the resource that helped me to achieve my dream—to be published. I have connected to people all over the world…Brazil, the United Kingdom, the U.S., Mexico, and countless other countries. These readers have actually had access to the development of my creativity. I am grateful.

I recommend the site to authors of all walks of life. Write about music, critique other writers, publish your photos, or like me, write short stories. I have published short stories from a gang member to the thief who died with Jesus and everything in between, and I am not done. I will forge on using my imagination to create stories that appeal…stories that tell a story…that fill the gap…that comfort the lonely…that make you cry and laugh.

Go on! Try it!
