This weekly challenge asked “what does the word WRITE mean to you? Go photograph that.” To me, it’s about reading what others have written. I like to write, but I LOVE to read what others have written even more, and one of my all-time favorite authors is Sidney Sheldon.
I once read an interview with Mr. Sheldon, who didn’t start writing his best-selling novels until age 50, where he said something like this – (I am paraphrasing).
“Usually when people get to the end of a chapter, they close the book and go to sleep. I deliberately construct the chapters so when the reader gets to the end of it, he or she has to read one more chapter. If a reader tells me I’ve kept them up all night, I feel like I have succeeded.”
Can’t stop turning pages – check.
Up all night – check.
Here’s a few of the hard-covers I own. Timeless crime fiction/thrillers with heavy doses of betrayals and revenge. Good stuff.
