every writer has to start somewhere

i came across this quote in my facebook memories feed today.

"The Lion all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. This picture had been in my mind since I was about sixteen. Then one day, when I was about forty, I said to myself: 'Let's try to make a story about it.'" - C. S. Lewis
i'm very glad for myself and the world that Mr. Lewis decided to "make a story about it."

So am I! As are many generations who have enjoyed the Narnia stories.
