As a recent University graduate, I'm embarking on the life journey called... adulthood. Thus far, I find it lacking! I miss not being judged for
believing noodles provide me with my five a day. However, now that I'm no longer required to whack out x-amount of assignments each week, this
hopefully means a I'll have time to finally write up the plethera of ideas that are fighting for attention in my brain.
I'm probably best known here for my Percy Jackson fictions and, with the third book upon the horizon, I'm certainly not lacking the inspiration to write
So, as much as I'm sure you'd all love to hear about the fantastically interesting tidbits of my life (which are, honestly, neither fantastic nor interesting) I'd
like to end this profile by discussing the subject of my recent University Dissertation. The question I chose is something I relate to with all my heart,
and I'm more than certain it rings true with many aspiring writers here;
'In what ways do 'fantasy' and 'enchantment' support children in their developing imaginative processes?'
Having been raised on 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Peter Pan' and all manner of Hans Christian Anderson and Grimm Fairytales, I
could safely assume that, from my own life experiences, 'fantasy' and 'enchantment' do help children grow up to be more
imaginative. I'm certain that many authors here have had a deep love of books and fiction and fantasy, and these experiences have turned us into the writers we are today.
In my research, the results I gathered from the twenty-two children I worked with proved unequivocally that when you introduce a child to Wonderland, their imagination will run wild.
