C. S. Lewis and How Narnia Began

"One thing I am sure of. All my seven Narnian books, and my three science-fiction books, began with seeing pictures in my head. At first they were not a story, just pictures. The Lion all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. This picture had been in my mind since I was about sixteen. Then one day, when I was about forty, I said to myself: 'Let's try to make a story about it'."

"It All Began with a Picture..."

I would like to start writing. I thought it might be cool to post my stories and poetry on this website. If the stories or poems aren't to your liking, then feel free to tell me.
