Empowering the Creativity of Your Mind

If you can imagine it – you can write it.

Imagination is the catalyst behind every good fiction story. By allowing yourself to unlock your imagination you can literally do anything in the universe – and then some! If you can think of the next step your character should take, you can start writing that character’s story. Soon, that character will start taking on a life of his or her own. Before long, your imagination will shock even yourself as your story continues. I’ll admit that even I have found myself laughing hysterically or crying crocodile tears as my fingers type out a scene I was not prepared for. When your story shocks even you – the writer – you know it’s going to be good! That is exactly why Imagination is key!

As an only child I discovered the joy of entertaining myself through my stories and carry that thrill through the writing process to my young readers. I love going to schools and visiting libraries. Reading to and educating children is a true joy of mine. Would you like to meet award winning Texas author Kathleen J. Shields? Please contact me if you’d like to have an author visit your students.
