A is for ATLANTIS
What writer isn't drawn to the legend of Atlantis? We've all heard of "the perfect storm" and "the perfect wave", but Atlantis truly is "the perfect story". All the elements are there, an advanced ancient civilization, unexplained phenomena, natural disaster, death and destruction, and an unsolved mystery that continues to haunt our imagination millenia after Plato recorded it in 360 BC. This is one tale that sets the bar high but what a great influence for all of us budding authors. Tomorrow, when I'm staring at a blank page and wondering what in the world to write about, I'll draw on the myth of Atlantis to create my own perfect story.
