My mind is immediately drawn to Dumbledore’s Deluminator when I see this image. But take it beyond obvious associations. Why is this man collecting the stars? Perhaps they are fuel to power some futuristic machine. Perhaps they are wishes he hopes to grant. what might happen if he fails in his quest to answer the wish? How might this curious man change the wishes of your characters?
I write to find the magic in words. My work is imaginative and whimsical, yet intellectual. My goal with writing is to mesmerize the reader. Reading is a form of magic, captivating the minds of people for thousands of years. Yet we seem to have forgotten that powerful ideas, intellectualism and art can be found within a beloved story. I challenge the belief that serious literature must be depressing, dark and dull.
