A couple of weeks ago, someone asked me which book or author was my inspiration in my writing. My muse, so to speak. I stared at them, dumbfounded, and thought. . . Honestly? Like we all just stick to one voice or one type of writing and live/breathe it? I am a person who has loved books my whole life. How can I discriminate that love? BUT . . .
As I've pondered this thought, I've realized something. I can remember the periods of my life according to what I've read. Pathetic? A little. I had plenty of friends--AND I loved spending time with characters in books.
The whole idea has got me feeling kind of nostalgic. In an attempty to harness it, I've decided to write my life story . . . IN BOOKS. Kind of, a history in years of books I've loved.
However, waxing nostalgic is NO FUN when you do it all by yourself. So I'm turning this into a blog hop/share. On Friday, May 28th, I want everyone to post your life story in books. ie. what was your favorite book in 1st grade, 2nd, teenage years, adulthood before marriage, post-child, etc. (You get the idea.)What books shaped you into the person you are today?
