Friday Follow




Q. Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?



This is a tough one because I don't want to say the obvious.

#1 - E.B. White

I'd love to hear about Charlotte's Web.  It is one of the books that I remember bonding with as a child and enjoy teaching to my second grade class.  I'd love to hear the inspiration and thought process that went into writing it.

#2 - Ray Bradbury

This is kind of a cheat because I had to chance to meet him when I was in Junior High School.  He attended a play version of one of his novels and talked to us afterward.  I remember he had a very distinct view of the world and writing.  I'd like the chance to learn more from him with an adult perspective.

#3 - JK Rowling

I'm sure this is someone lots of people would like to spend time with.  I'm most curious about her writing process and whether or not she feels that she has a different story to tell.

What about you?

Tons of people are picking JK Rowling and I can see why! Harry Potter is amazing and I'm so sad the movies are over :( But nice picks! Here's my FF if you want to check it out!

If this were a contest, I think J.K. Rowling would be winning hands down. Great list!

Good choices! I bet J.K. Rowling is on a lot of lists! I think we're kind of alike because I read just about everything too; I don't like to tie myself down by sticking with one certain genre. I don't read a lot of non-fiction either, because it can be boring. But when I do, it's usually memoirs.

Thanks for following me and listing me! Wow, so nice. :) Very cool that you actually met Bradbury. E.B. White would probably be very personable. And Jo Rowling is definitely the winner of this FF question. Dawn @ Read Love
