What a day — or more — for a daydream in the summer heat of July. In fact it feels like the perfect time to wonder “what if” The Divining Wand possessed magical powers and could grant authors, who create their own magic with “what if,” the following two questions:
Based only on their writing, what author would you want to be?
If given the opportunity to have written ONE book in your lifetime, what would that title be?
“I don’t know what author I would want to be because I can’t help but think about their “‘real'” lives. My father always taught me that “‘the grass is probably greener on my own lawn regardless to how it looks from my side of the fence.'” However, I truly love Anne Tyler and if I could write just one of her novels, I would feel blessed. As for the one book– I would love to have written To Kill A Mockingbird! But Harper Lee only wrote one book– I am sure that was difficult for her.
“Arturo Perez-Reverte. He’s a terrific writer and it’s always so clear he’s having fun.”
“The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald.”
