This is a toughie for me because I love so many writers from so many different genre. I love my students of writing first and foremost, though beyond them....
My favorite modern poet? Mary Oliver, most likely, though lately the words of Ellen Bass have woo’ed me.
My favorite “how-to-write” author is most likely Julia Cameron, though she has consistently got on my nerves since I had read her stuff, her suggestions have not only changed my writing they have changed my life. Whenever I find a new how-to-write author I am excited though. Right now I am reading Thinking about Memoir by Abigail Thomas. Her style ROCKS! Seriously… so simple, straightforward and so far it is jargon free. And I love the front cover photo.
My favorite memoirist? May Sarton. I think. Today, anyway.
My favorite children’s author? Probably still Laura Ingalls Wilder for the classics, Judy Blume for the my era classics. Plus I have always loved Hans Christian Anderson.
My favorite novelist? I don’t have one. I need to read more novels. I look forward to reading other Summer Blog Challenge posts so I can see what suggestions everyone makes.
It is great to be back – and I will be perusing earlier topics and adding my voice to some of them. I had a phenomenal heart opening road trip vacation. It is tough to be back and in my writing seat but here I am, I say proudly. Here I am!
