Magic on Monday: Inspiration by Christine Locke

Writing the second in a series of three novels about magic now....  This is my desk at the moment, so if you'd like clues as to where Carin's story is going, here you go!

Never underestimate the power of the right book to inspire magic in your writing.  We bibliophiles know that our collection of books can give us strength in moments of seeking for that next plot twist or thematic idea.

"I believe in the magic of books. I believe that during certain periods in our lives we are drawn to particular books--whether it's strolling down the aisles of a bookshop with no idea whatsoever of what it is that we want to read and suddenly finding the most perfect, most wonderfully suitable book staring us right in the face. Unblinking. Or a chance meeting with a stranger or friend who recommends a book we would never ordinarily reach for. Books have the ability to find their own way into our lives.” --Cecelia Ahern

I'll say more about one of these books on Wednesday; as for the rest, I'll list them here in case you can't read the titles:
The Language of Flowers, Kate Greenaway
A Moveable Feast, Earnest Hemingway
Walden, Henry David Thoreau
The Uses of Enchantment, Bruno Bettelheim
Clarissa, Samuel Richardson
Vogue Fashion, Linda Watson
The Basic Writings of C.G. Jung
