Hello fellow writers,
J. K. Rowling, famous author of the well-known Harry Potter series, said in her Harvard School commencement speech in 2008, “Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation…but also the capacity to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.”
What an enlightened statement! Then and now, imagination remains a crucial part of our lives. Whether we use it as a tool in our science-fiction and fantasy writing, or in our everyday lives, the world as we know it would not be the same and without imagination there would not be change and improvement in our lives and the lives of others.
