Life is nowhere near as boring as you think it is.

I’m writing a fantasy story, with magic and elves and all that sort of thing. It will be the first story I’ll release. Can you imagine if we had magic in our day to day life? I think it would be boring.I remember when I bought the first iPad. Not the first one in the world, but the first release of the iPad. It was on release day.
