Today is the beginning of the A to Z Challenge and I promised you a double-header. Hopefully I will not disappoint. Each day I will focus on a word that has a connection with the writing world, and I will give you a book "teaser" where I shine the spotlight on a children's book whose title matches the letter of the day. Let the games begin!
Alchemists of long ago drew from the world around them to explain the unexplainable. Writers should do the same. Open your eyes to the wonders before you and incorporate it into your writing. Whether mad scientist or crafty wizard, your characters will create magic to capture the imagination of your audience. Just imagine the worlds that await for those of us with eyes wide open!
