Writing Appreciation Day (Celebrate Writers and/or Writing)

Since NaNoWriMo started yesterday, we should appreciate our favorite writers and/or the art of writing. Here are a few writers who stand out for me:

– Judy Blume (“Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret” is my favorite book.)
– Harper Lee (“To Kill a Mockingbird”, of course!)
– James Patterson (“Kiss the Girls”, “Along Came a Spider”, “Roses are Red”, etc.)
– Michael Norman (“Haunted Heartland” and “Haunted America” to name a few. Plus, he signed a book for me!)
– Stephanie Meyer (The “Twilight” Series)

Those are just a few, but you have a basic idea! Now it’s your turn, if you want to share!

  1. My dad usually doesn’t enjoy reading, but for the past two years or so he’s been trying to learn to enjoy it (I think its an effort to “bond” with me). I introduced him to James Patterson about a year ago, and since then he definitely started to understand why I enjoy reading so much. I’m not a huge fan of J.P. but hey, if he gets my dad reading he’s pretty awesome in my book.

    As for Judy Blume, LOVE her. I want to reread her books now, And Harper Lee, genius. Pure genius.

  2. I would love to be a writer, but don’t seem to have the drive to create. I am a reader, though. An appreciater of the writers! Some of my favs are Haruki Murakami, Jane Hamilton, Anne Tyler, Steve Martin, and David Sedaris. I could go on fairly endlessly :-)

  3. I would love to be a successful author, one who could just write what he wanted and be well paid for my output. Doesn’t happen in the real world of course. I enjoy many writers, William Boyd, Tom Clancy, Ian Fleming, Raymond Chandler, JR Tolkien and on and on.

  4. Silver: That’s how I started to appreciate reading again! I was buying a James Patterson book for my mom, and while in line at the store I started reading the book. I was hooked!

    Laura B: I’ve never ready anything from Steve Martin, although I’m sure some of the movies he’s been in has been written by him!

    FW: My mom used to be a big fan of Tom Clancy and Michael Creighton. She just finished the Steig Larssen series, “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.
