    Magic happens when your fingers start blazing over the keyboard, typing away words, drafting sentences, paragraph after paragraph. The first chapter of your Act One is finished and you feel like you’ve climbed a small hill, headed for the top of the mounting.

    My Must Read Book List

    In celebration of #Fridayreads on Twitter, I wanted to share with you some of the books that are near and dear to my heart.
