Birth of the Writer Fairy
If you’re a writer, you wish there was a Writer Fairy. One who would appear when needed and say “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled writer yearning to breathe fresh, brilliant writing into this manuscript! How can I help?” Yes, I know. The only way to finish a manuscript is to sit down and write. But I can dream, can’t I?
When I searched for graphics for this website, I found a whimsical one from artist, Crystal Bannin at http://thequeenoftorts.blogspot.com/ Perfect! A fairy with words printed on her clothes and the gracious Crystal, who allowed me to use an image of her artwork entitled “Rachel.” The Writer Fairy hatched like a Twitter egg into an avatar.
Then I had an epiphany. Writer Fairies do exist. They’re the wonderful writers, mentors, or other industry professionals we encounter on our journeys as readers and writers. Why not honor them?
Next week I’ll write about one of my personal Writer Fairies. HINT: I’ve already mentioned her on this site. Check the Writer Fairy of the Week blog to see if you guessed correctly.
In the meantime, please tell me about one of your Writer Fairies or ask a question about writing.
