images_051Shh…I’m looking up more magic to add to  Monday. I see a wishing well, a magic carpet,  and several good luck charms. One thing I cannot find is a magic pen. Why? This has to come from the writer.

You need to find your magic pen and complete your writing. Stuck? It does not matter if you are a novice, just published, or have a stack of books published. We all get stuck. Our minds, brains, hearts, can hold so much before things get hazy and we need to step back, take a deep breath, and relax.

When this happens, can you remember back to writing prompts? I can hear laughs and imagine heads shaking back and forth. What these prompts can do, is shake up your mind and let you write silly. So, consider magic as a release of proper, and a return to fun.

What about your magic carpet? All you have to do is jump on. Yeah. Right. Yes, right. You can conjure this picture in your mind. Look. There it is floating beside your computer. Take a ride and look at things from the air. When you fly upside down, things take on a difference. Or when you slide by all the problems, time limits, and pressures, you can laugh, have a great time, and see a different prospective. Enjoy your ride.

Lucky charms. Remember the bracelets with all the charms dangling around your wrist? What about the 4-Leaf Clover? How about the “he loves me, he loves me not,” without cheating. Let yourselves be a child again and learn how magic works.

Do not jinx your writing by forgetting the child within. Stand back and look down the wishing well. Yes, in your imagination. This well is deep, narrow, yet you can see the gold coins in the bottom. So, grab a few shiny pennies, make your wishes and toss down the well. Who knows what might happen. You have magic and you can accomplish whatever you set out to do. How? By keeping the pen to the paper, the fingers on the keyboard, ideas lighted by a great fire, and never forget the people who are there to cheer you forward. THIS IS THE MAGIC.

Have a great Magical Monday. Create your magic and make your day the best Monday ever.


Happy Writing.
