Another one from T.A. Baron....
It's interesting to think of fiction like that.
Years and years ago, after I finished reading fantasy series I really enjoyed (I don't remember what it was), I lay in bed, in that halfway spot between awake and asleep, and I imagined what it would be like to have the magical powers the heroine of the story had. I imagined if it were me. The magic system had something to do with singing...it was really cool and I loved it.
Now I wish that instead of just imagining it, I would have started writing it. I mean, not a book just like the one I read, but something that was mine, in a world that I created.
It only took me another 6 years to figure out who I wanted to be. And how much fun it is to create my own worlds and my own magic system and creatures and villains and chaos.
I love it.
