Imaginary Worlds

These pictures feel like a fairytale world. I need to write a fantasy set in this place. Gotta come up with a name for it. Amazing how it's never the same two days in a row.

Here's how: Twitter convert that I am (I'm still eating crow over that), I discovered a Web site dedicated to fantasy literature, conveniently called Fantasy … Continue reading Picture, if you will…
