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.

Saturday: 74 degrees and the magnolias popped.
Today: my poor, frozen magnolias.
And what's left of the daffodils.
April's writing goal: to finish my Barefoot revisions and send them to Steve by the end of the month.
