My dash is so confusing at times because of the mix of blogs I follow. One moment I’m scrolling past a super shippy Doctor/Rose post and the next is the skinned head of a victim of the Mexican drug cartel. It’s an interesting combination of feelings.

Imagination doesn’t just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving them, or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. Head teachers would call this escapism, but they would be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful, branch of writing there is. And this is why I don’t, and never would, write Real Books.
