Thanks to Colleen over at Silver Threading for facilitating this weekly community event.
As we head into the month of October, my featured author for Writer’s Quote Wednesday is Stephen King. King, a prolific American writer of horror has published 54 novels to date. Information on King can be found on his author’s website and his Wikipedia page.
King is known to say that to be a writer one must read and write voraciously for a minimum of four to six hours per day. When I see this quote I am reminded of seeing King sitting in the stands at women’s basketball games at the University of Maine always reading a book. Clearly he practices what he preaches.
Recently, I’ve decided I wanted to do less reading electronically and more with the actual book in hand. I made the trip to my local library hoping to pick up Tom Clancy’s The Hunt for Red October. Instead, I came home with three books in my book bag:
- Legends of Winter Hill by local author Jay Atkinson
- Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
- Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley
What’s in your book bag?
