Q. What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?
This is such a hard question to answer for the mere fact I have SO many favorite authors. They all have meant different things to me, and even authors I wouldn’t necessarily claim as “favorites” their books have touched me in one way or another.
I think I would more like to write to all of them:
Thank you for giving me worlds to escape into. For giving me experiences I could have had no other way but through the beauty or horror of your words. Thank you for giving me insights into this universal human experience we all share – and yet feel in a thousand different ways. Thank you for putting into words thoughts and feelings I’ve had in ways I never could myself. Thank you for making me laugh, for inspiring me, for making me angry, for pushing my boundaries and expanding the mind I consider open enough but apparently can still open further, for showing me there is never just two sides of any story there are probably at least three and one more, and for teaching me about myself.
Thank you for sharing your talent, the voices in your head, with me and the rest of us readers. We love hearing them and entering the world’s where they live and breathe and become our friends and our enemies.
April, one of many readers
Happy Friday People!
