Reading self-help and success books led me to read more and more. Eventually that led to me writing my own.

L. Diane - I think success books and "how-to" books often build up our knowledge and our confidence so we can build foundations under our dreams.

Lovely kaleidoscope - and great word for today. Reading snippets in newspapers, magazines or hearing on the TV about events can open up the door to creativity.

That kaleidoscope image is neat but that key is amazing!

I think of my imagination as a kind of kaleidoscope I never picked up and used until I started writing.

Love that kaleidescope imagery. It works when you're editing, too, and move all kinds of scenes around, trying to find the best fit for the story.

The awesome thing about kaleidoscopes is that they change, and allow us to see something new. Learning happens when we see something new. Thanks for sharing.

Hi, I remember the first kaleidoscope I ever picked up and looked through. It was one of those cheap ones in the dime store, and I never tired of looking into it. Life is that way, too. Always changing, never the same, but full of beautiful colors and shapes. Thank you for the lovely post. Best regards to you. Ruby
