The Ceiling of Imagination

February 8, 2013 by Kiersi

I love writing books
Where the imaginative ceiling is
impossibly high;

I want to jump
arms in the air
make up the wildest things
and never once touch that ceiling.

I want to create worlds
where anything can happen;
any creature can exist;
any magic can be real;

A world where there are no limits.

I want to make my reader
believe anything
and everything
is real.

In case you haven’t stopped by lately, there are dozens more Typewriter Stories up–including one of my favorites, The Search for the Sun. Writer and blogger Lauren Spieller actually liked her custom-made story so much, she framed it and took this photo for us!


  1. I think you’ve started something.

  2. Kiersi, LOVE your post. 🙂

    Kiersi, isn’t it a great feeling when you’re creating something without any limits? Readers are helpless in the face of a good story that takes them places they’d never expect. We should all aim to write with no boundaries. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. This snippet is so you, Kiersi. Your ambitious reach and exhuberant imagination are always evident in your writing.

    This totally gave me that gleeful, bouncing on the bed high feeling. Nice job!
