Own your magic — you creators — because it is bigger and brighter than you could ever know.

Worlds, galaxies, and connections between the people, the characters therein are at your fingertips. Regardless of the medium you choose, you have magic in you and you need to own it.

Don’t listen to the naysayers; don’t listen to the doubters — well, if only to get their sentiments right for dialogue later — and don’t take their dark sentiments into your tender, brave hearts if you do hear it. Own your magic and don’t be afraid to share it. Someone out there believes in it as much as you do, needs it as much as you do, and gives it as much stock as you do.

It may take some time to find your tribe, if only because you may have to imagine it first. But don’t hesitate, don’t worry; get your world, your community, your tribe down on paper and share it. Explore that tribe with potential members. Have faith that your audience merely awaits.

Do you realize that you’re magic incarnate? That you can create, generate, and procreate in the best possible ways — on paper, in a blog, and with the very power of your voice. You are a living, breathing creator of worlds — whether you’re creating comic books, trade paperbacks, or a dark literary journal. And all of these are only the base of the mountain!

Don’t let fear stop you. Don’t let doubt stop you. Don’t let the very boundaries of reality stop you. Own your magic.
