My 2015 A to Z Challenge Theme is Quotes & Lines from Literature. Each day I will be posting a favorite quote or a few lines from well known short stories, poems or novels, with the letter of the first name as the A to Z. I’ll have a short write up with each quote, but each quote can also serve as a writing prompt for readers or myself. I may write a poem or flash fiction based on that quote, or just throw it out there as inspiration. Hopefully you’ll join me in this adventure! I’ll try to include some of my favorite blog finds as I move through the challenge as well.
This quote is just one of many gems that can be found in Stephen King’s autobiographical writing guide, On Writing.
My Twisted Writers post yesterday was about reading and writing and how they can go hand in hand, but also how I have been missing reading lately. I just enjoy reading, so the fact that I haven’t done much lately has me feeling like I am missing some of that magic King talks about. I have books all around and a To Be Read list that is always growing, so I have no real excuse except time. But busy or not, I need to make time for reading.
Are you a reader? What are you reading now?
