Are You A Prince or a Princess?
My granddaughter recently visited and I happen to ask her what her favorite character was... well... I was rudely awakened to the fact that she liked all the Disney princesses and she wanted to be just like them! She started naming off all the princesses, some of which I didn't know, and then started singing their theme songs. I was definitely awed by her ability to dance around and then curtsy.
What I wanted to tell her (but couldn't), was that in about a year and a half we would be making the reservations for our own trip to the Magic Kingdom. My granddaughter will be seven when we go - just the right age to be swept away by Disney's magic. But it was her question to me that got me thinking.
"Nana, which princess are you?"
We all have a kid inside that's begging to get out at times. That princess is the key to my imagination and by allowing her to have time to play gives me an enriched ability when I write. It doesn't mean I have to be a princess 24/7, but it means letting myself imagine my way through the story I'm working on. And you can too. Be a prince or princess and allow your imagination to fly! I'll see you later!
