Rachael watched as Yasmin flipped the sketchbook open and tossed the pages. She showed Rachael a terrifying image, explaining that it is supposed to be some kind of monster in the woods.

"Yikes," was all Rachael said when she saw the image.

One of the things Rachael enjoyed about literature was that it allowed her to form the images in her own head, so any sort of person or creature could look the way she envisioned it. If the person or thing was shown to her with an accompanying image, she found that it could spoil the fantasy of it and force her to view it that specific way. This was particularly awful if it was something terrifying. Cthulu was terrifying to imagine, but Rachael had seen plenty of illustrations of the monster that drove men to madness at the sight of the unearthly monster, and that terrified her. Same with any detailed image of the mechanical dog from Fahrenheit 451 or Carroll's Jabberwocky.

Yasmin then mentioned getting sending photographs to magazines as well.

"Oh, I didn't know you could do that," Rachael said. "I thought magazines hired photographers for specific stories. Or, is it for art magazines, where anyone can get their pictures published? Any success so far?"
