Magic feather? It sounded like the name of a Dr. Seuss book to me at first. Now, I know that a magic feather is something of a lucky charm for writers. It’s whatever gets the creative juices flowing. My magic feather is probably sitting down and reading before I start my own work. It inspires me to write well so that my stories can hopefully one day be engaging to other people, like the ones I enjoy reading are to me.
