"The Beatles haven't got any magic you haven't got."--John Lennon
It's easy to be discouraged by the works of others. "I'll never turn a phrase like that one," you think. "I wish my descriptions were as lush and full." When we read a finished product, those phrases, those descriptions, those characters seem so natural, so easy, so the result of talent or genius. Talent plays a part, yes, but there's no magic there--there's hours and hours of work, determination, grit, experience. In the end, you want it to look easy, to look like magic, and to be magical for a reader.
