World of Magic


Me ~ Maryellen



My stories weave myth and magic with fairy-tale and folklore into something unique and leave the reader with a sense of wonder.

Writing is like air for me. I can’t imagine life without it. It is woven into every part of my soul.

    Air whips about, or gently breathes, or is still and all other kinds of airy things. It’s the same with writing, no?

    You put that so poetically: writing like air.
    I wish writing was so casual, so everyday, so graceful for me.
    For me it’s a need. A heart-pounding, sweaty compulsion that gives me a rush I feel in my body and my mind. It’s an addiction. A hunger. I’m having a liaison with words. Even when I leave my room, sated, I want more and come back the next day, eager to write again. I love it. I never want to be stop.

    • and there is no reason you ever have to stop πŸ™‚ that thrill is always available….

      without air, I don’t breathe, I don’t exist, so it’s the same desire expressed in different ways….the beauty of writing!

  • Not only writing comes naturally to you Maryellen, you also have a knack for blogging. Lovely, suggestive imagery at the top, intriguing bits of information that make your reader long for more and great links. I’m glad we met today, but think you already had the right idea(s)!

    Maryellen, its such a nice blog…

    I think, you are learning digital photography… did you take shots?

    • I am learning digital photography, but most of the great shots on my blog, the ones of Black River and the herons, belong to Mike Hamilton.

      My photos are posted on my facebook page. Perhaps I will create a page for photos on this blog in the future. My camera goes everywhere with me now, like my favorite pen and notebook πŸ™‚

      thank you for visiting!!!

    Enjoy the rhythm of your expressions. Your imagination seems to incorporate ever emerging worlds ‘weaving’ them into our local tapestries.
