The Power of Story
You’re hanging out here because you know the power of story. You’re a reader or you’re a writer (and every writer is also a reader). You have been transported to another time and place by a good story. Ever read a Christmas book in July just so you could cool off? I have.
A story can take you across the galaxies or back in time to walk in those impractical shoes the women of the Ton are always stuck in during balls in Regency England. A story can also lift spirits and help us face another day when newspaper headlines or family crises make us want to hide under our blankets.
So here we are counting down to the unleashing of this magic power by hundreds of readers and writers. The goal? Move the world closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis. That’s a happy ending we can all look forward to.
Get ready. Start inviting your friends to form a team. Writers outline those stories, find names for your characters, research your setting–whatever it is you do to prepare to write. Readers–stack up the TBR pile (okay, I know you already have a giant TBR pile–don’t you’re going to win a few more books here). Make your list of friends and relatives who may donate. (Note–don’t rule people out for this list just because they may not want to donate. You never really know until you ask).
We’re going to have a special prize for all those you get 15 donations in the first week.
