Darla gazed out at the scene displayed through her window. A lively river danced around a corner, past a pocket of trees and through the entrance to the tunnel under the bridge.

Such a lovely place, she mused. But it has no dragons.

Indeed, no dragons nor elves, dwarves, goblins or fairies. But she knew of a land that did and her heart longed to return.

Turning her eyes to the laptop on her desk, she began to type. As the words flowed, her old world melted into the new.

Chapter Four: Harland’s sword felt heavy in his hand

Word Count: 99

I think all who write fiction can relate. The worlds we create, the characters with whom we spend so much time can become so magically real. Imagination brought to life through written word is a powerful and wonderful thing.]

  1. A nice snapshot of the creative imagination at work. This made me ponder why we write, and why it’s so satisfying – we can make the everyday world more magic and chaotic, or we can remove some of the chaos as we control events and build characters. Your title says it all, actually.
