“The good thing about writing books is that you can dream while you are awake.”

—Haruki Murakami

Love these wise words from brilliant Japanese author Haruki Murakami.

After all, a writer will go nowhere without an active imagination. And yes, chances are your favorite author has a tendency to daydream at various points throughout the day (and night).

Luckily, unlike most professions, writing is a job where an ability to daydream is actually a valuable skill.

So yes, I agree fully with author Haruki Murakami, and applaud authors’ ability to dream while awake – and to turn those dreams into the books we all enjoy so much.

Happy dreaming (and writing) to all.
