Create Waves in Writing Worlds

As writers we are ultimate overseers of the worlds within words.

The power to create and destroy those worlds is ours. It's all or nothing on a free-flight of imagination.

And it all begins with a stroke of a key, the sweep of a pen nub on parchment, the whisper of an idea into a tape recorder or a crayon on lined paper. We then catch that wave of thought and turn it into a story, a poem or a brilliant treatise on "greening." And all along, the writer who is shaping those words is shaped by them.

How many times do we look out at a vast ocean of possible worlds in words, only to dig our toes into the sand on the shore and yearn?
