Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal

Paul had always been fascinated by the idea of magic. He had seen movies and TV shows where people could do amazing things with their minds, like astral project or disappear into thin air. But until now, he had never believed that it was possible for real.

One day, Paul was lying in bed, thinking about how cool it would be to be able to do magic himself, when he suddenly had a revelation. He could use his imagination to create any kind of magic he wanted!

Excited by his newfound ability, Paul spent the rest of the day immersed in thought, exploring all the different ways he could use his magic. He created a portal that led to the mythical land of Oz, and the next day he used his magic to make his parents disappear.

By the end of the week, Paul had managed to do all sorts of amazing things with his magic. But the most amazing of all was when he used his magic to heal a young girl’s heartbroken parents.

Now, Paul couldn’t believe how lucky he was to have discovered this amazing power. He was determined to use it to make the world a better place.
