 From the editor

Did you have imaginary friends as a child? Did you pretend to be someone else while you were playing? If you did, you're as normal as two-thirds of children surveyed as part of a study by University of Washington and University of Oregon psychologists.

This type of play is rich in the tools future writers will need to create great fiction, develop interesting characters, and tell good stories. 

Why not delve back into your childhood this week and remember the characters and stories that fascinated you?
