If you haven't read the best ones yet, write them. Are many of you, here, authors and novelists? I've had favorite authors. They write historical fiction, crime, law and justice. I also enjoy tales and stories of old, and the classics such as Aesop's. I love the fascinating and witty ancient tales so much that my children and I share a read or two. Or three for hours on some days. They live in our minds as if they are alive. After an amazingly good read, I usually think that I wish I wrote something like that incredible novel. If a novel were that bad, I wouldn't count on moving on to chapter two. I started with the classics by authors we wouldn't have heard about. Since our love for books, writing has become our means of creative expression. Our children, grandchildren and pupils will see and catch on with the same path they see us love doing. My mother had influence on me with my love for books and writing. And I'm passing it on to my children and grandchildren.
