I’m excited to welcome a new face to Inklings Week 2023! Join me in welcoming Heidy De La Cruz and I hope you’re inspired by her poetic words today.
There is freedom in words.
Freedom to create.
Freedom to live.
Freedom to imagine.
Create a world from your imagination.
Where rules are what you write.
Creatures are what you describe.
And the hero is who you want.
Create a hero like Prince Caspian who stood up for what was right,
Even if it was against his people.
A hero who helped the citizens of Narnia win their land back.
Use your words to create.
Use your words to inspire.
Use your words to build a whole new world, where people visit with the imagination of their minds.
Use your words to fight for freedom.
Thank you so much Heidy! How has writing inspired you?
