This year at Brewing Coffee, Twisting Words & Breaking Pencils my theme is “this year I am writing a novel.” So, in light of that I decided to try and keep to the theme a bit with my A to Z topic. I decided on using writing words that start with each letter of the alphabet to create short posts.
A – Author
Who or what is an author? An author is someone fond of books, drawn to narrative, a word nerd, a tale teller, a picture painter, a chronicler, a story writer, a creator of a written work…
In a bubbling witch’s cauldron I imagine the author in me pouring the letters of the alphabet, some punctuation marks along with sparkles, fairy dust, moon glitter, sun beams, twinkling lights, rainbow colours, a pinch of snow, saw dust and a wart from a troll into a cauldron to boil, stir and cook. The author in me spins magic and cooks words giving the existence to literary art.
