Or it’s a damn waste of time.
I’ve said it before, and it’s trite to not only say it again, but to say it now, but I am back.
Big things on the horizon – I can’t wait to share and most importantly get back to this community.
It wasn’t too long ago that I did a post about On The Road by Kerouac. The stylistic approach and the sense of adventure while not glorified spoke to me in a way no other book had before. I have a feeling that as the summer approaches I might read my work through all of his works.
They say the more you read after the better you write, although I will admit sitting down to write has been a struggle lately for any number of reasons.
Have you ever read a book by one author and then just been sucked into reading everything they wrote? If so who?
For the Kerouac fans, which book should I pick up next?
I find that sometimes you have to look in different places for inspiration and answers for your writing. I decided to read a Kerouac because there is something about his writing that just speaks to me, I know I am not the only one. His use of first person narration is masterful and while I don’t want to emulate it in my current novel I want to take away some of his tricks. Besides, while reading this I feel like I am on an adventure and nothing gets the creative juices flowing like an adventure.
What are some novels you all read to go on an adventure?
