One of the greatest quotes about being a writer comes from George Buchanan who says. “The novel is an event in consciousness. Our aim isn't to copy actuality, but to modify and recreate our sense of it. The novelist is inviting the reader to watch a performance in his own brain.”
Not only do I love to write, but I love to read. At a young age I fell in love with the power of words and the escape of fairy tales. A great book does have the ability to take us, the readers, us on an epic journey. We may find ourselves on another planet. Or wake in the darkness of a forest. Maybe that journey took us down dusty roads, through haunted houses or even stranded us in a mountain cabin with a trio of hot me.
When we read we may laugh, cry or do both. We may connect with the heroine, daydream about the hero, and find we need to know more about those characters we have gone on that journey with. So, all that being said I want to hear from you. Tell me about some of your favorite books. Tell me why you loved them or about your favorite characters. Leave a quote or favorite line from the books you love.
