S is for…


My 2015 A to Z Challenge Theme is Quotes & Lines from Literature. Each day I will be posting a favorite quote or a few lines from well known short stories, poems or novels, with the letter of the first name as the A to Z. I’ll have a short write up with each quote, but each quote can also serve as a writing prompt for readers or myself.  I may write a poem or flash fiction based on that quote, or just throw it out there as inspiration. Hopefully you’ll join me in this adventure! I’ll try to include some of my favorite blog finds as I move through the challenge as well.


This quote is just one of many gems that can be found in Stephen King’s autobiographical writing guide, On Writing

My Twisted Writers post yesterday was about reading and writing and how they can go hand in hand, but also how I have been missing reading lately. I just enjoy reading, so the fact that I haven’t done much lately has me feeling like I am missing some of that magic King talks about. I have books all around and a To Be Read list that is always growing, so I have no real excuse except time. But busy or not, I need to make time for reading.

Are you a reader? What are you reading now?

  1. Portable magic indeed. Books are the first thing I pack on a trip. I am reading Wolf Hall (I am ahead of the TV show so far). too many books, not enough time

  2. I love this quote; I agree with this completely.

    A friend recently introduced me to Terry Pratchett. I’m on my third book of his. It’s from the Tiffany Aching series. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I love this quote. And the whole book of his is well worth the read! I haven’t read Pratchett yet but have friends who love his work. May have to add to my TBR list 😉

  3. Never enough time to read!! I recently read Captain Blood (freaking fantastic), Jane Eyre (a page turner), The Scarlet Pimpernel (holy cow!), and reading Mosquitoland (local author) right now. H for Hawk is next!!

    1. Sounds like a great list! I downloaded Scarlet Pimpernel but this month at work has been insanity. I’m barely keeping my head above water. But I have been missing my reading time. Reading that isn’t my twin first grade son’s books every night. Lately that seems to be my primary reading! Fun fun fun!!
