Yesterday was my birthday. I shan't tell you how old I am, after all, a lady never reveals her age.
Hubby gave me a new book. I love books and don't think I could ever have enough of them, but I'm particularly excited about this book.
Written by Gail Carson Levine (the famous author of modern retellings of fairy tales such as Ella Enchanted, Fairest and Ever among others) Writing Magic: Creating Stories that Fly is, as the title suggests, about writing magical stories. Stories that have that special zing, that touch of gold, that special MAGIC!
Inspired by the creative writing courses for children that she runs, the book is more for children than adults so it's written in a fun and engaging way.
I have already dipped into it a little and really enjoyed the tit-bits I've read. If you're interested there's a really good review of the book here.
