Putting imagination on a page
Minnesota author Alison McGhee thinks writing is a "cool" job because her job is whatever she imagines it to be.
McGhee spoke to Middleton Elementary classes on Feb. 9 about writing and reading as part of the school's observance of "I Love to Read Month. "
"You are just making up your job out of thin air because it's just you and your mind," she said. "Usually I just pluck random images or objects out of the air and start writing and see where it takes me."
