The Life and Times of a Bibliophile
I’ll admit, my first idea was to write an A-to-Z of flash fiction, but given that I had already decided to do Camp NaNoWriMo as well, and not certain how I could make flash fiction relevant to my Camp NaNoWriMo plans, I decided to take some pressure off myself, and go with something a little less ambitious. That sounds a lot better than my “What Were You Thinking” alarms started wailing like a tornado warning in Oklahoma during the summer.
What I’ve decided to do is write about books, specifically the books and people who made me fall in love with reading. I’ve tried to focus on the time frame before the age of 16, since my love affair with books was well established by then. The thing about reading, at least for me, is that not only is my taste constantly evolving, but I keep meeting new authors, new works that re-energize my love for the written word. In addition to my childhood favourites, I’ve also included more recent offerings that have spoken to my heart in similar ways.
Care to join me on this visit with the stories and storytellers who have shaped the reader that I am? It’ll be fun!
