The Creation of a World

At 8, I came close to failing an English exam because one of the questions was too exciting. I diligently began by reading through the entire paper, but was immediately derailed by the final assignment:

“Write about the creation of a world.”

Aslan, creator of worlds, from C. S. Lewis’ The Magician’s Nephew. (Pauline Baynes)

Ideas exploded, ripping through my mind and spawning possibilities even as I tried to wrench my attention back to the other questions.
