Imagination doesn't just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving [problems] or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. [Some people] would call this escapism, but they would be be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful branch of writing there is.

Last Day for Free Book

Just a reminder: tomorrow is the last day you can enter drawing for a free copy of Sid Fleischman's out-of-print marvelous little book, Jingo Django. Go here for contest rules and for more on why you don't want to miss this little-known book. 

Also, Maria, you won a book a couple of months ago. Contact me at and let me know your address, if you still want it.
