“Unicorn was sitting in his special writing house.
“I am going to write the most FABULOUS story in the world,” he thought.Brilliant! Full marks for ambition! A++
“This made him feel very pleased with himself.
“He already liked being a writer.”
Also for self-belief: once you start writing then you are indeed a writer! It’s finding the courage to put your first words to paper that’s the trick: actually starting in on your story…
But do you know what? Do it!
Don’t wait for inspiration to come knocking on your door; it’ll only be a cold-caller, touting for business. Clear your own mental gutters and begin doodling away, jotting down ideas! Start writing sentences – any sentences will do – until some start sounding right. They never will sound right until you begin!
That’s going to be Unicorn’s problem if he’s not careful. He’ll also have to overcome a certain degree of self-obsession; for one must always remember the value of friendship as the most important source of happiness, but also a well of that oh-so elusive inspiration.
What a deliciously vibrant book, with a dazzlingly shiny gold cover!
