I have at a time hated books. I hated to read. It wasn’t to say I wasn’t interesting to read, it was just at that time I felt most of the content were typical. I felt the same story and angles were being used. Now I feel the same way about films. I still love film, just feel a lack of storyline is being used to be different. I will get back to film another post, but books were my enemy. Have you ever felt that way before?
In high school when I discovered Shakespeare, Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou is when it hit me, I love books. I hate to have to go 0-500 pages of reading but I loved books. I just hated reading them in school just to pass a test.
What intrigue me the most were the authors and their story. I used to wonder what the author must have been thinking to capture an emotion and to keep you engaged within a story. Why they choose a certain plot or how thought of their characters names. So based off of those curiosities and the lack or void of certain storytelling, I wanted to be a published author. I didn’t know how and when, but I knew before the end of my life (I later adapted to the fame term: Bucket List), I would like it noted and documented that I was a published author.
Streamline about 10 plus years later, I figured out my angle and stories I wanted to write and tell, it’s just the execution of it I was missing. It was my goal to achieve this “Published Author” milestone in 2012, but sadly I failed at that, based on timing and a lot of pressure with other goals and milestones I wanted, but finally can say with certainty that 2013 will be the year I achieve a dream.
Who are you favorite authors? Do you like to read? Do you own a digital e-reader?
Thanks for reading
