I sat at my desk with no thoughts in my mind. Completely blank. 

 

I closed my eyes and began to zoom out of the reality we live in. 

 

Soon I took off into a whole different world. 

 

A world is full of words, characters, forests, homes, and songs. 

 

I jumped into a soft pillow-like cushion made out of the softest cashmere. 

 

Before my eyes, a book landed on top of my lap. The old pages were torn and looked as if they'd been handed down for years. 

 

I began flipping through the dusty pages. Words flying all around me. 

 

A flashing light beholds my eyes. 

 

I suddenly opened my eyes. My eyes fluttered shut again hoping to go back to the world I was just in. 

 

I opened my eyes and looked at my screen. 

 

And began typing. 

 

Words came, and stories flew in from the window. In a flurry, I typed and typed. 

 

Words soon became sentences. Sentences soon became paragraphs. Paragraphs become stories. Stories became a light.
