Where will a story take you?

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , on October 5, 2014 by Kate Jack


Reading a really great story can take you out of the doldrums and into worlds vibrant, with  fresh horizons to explore. It enables you to connect with new people, via the book’s characters, and can take you along paths and roads you never thought to explore before. Best of all, you can revisit those places and people again and again, should you choose to do so.

A good book can give the reader a whole new perspective on life. It can inspire, uplift, even enrage; all emotions that tell you you’re alive. It can generate empathy, compassion and a whole plethora of feelings that send the blood coursing through your veins.

A good book is like a wonderful symphony, using words instead of music. So live a little. Whatever your preferred genre, buy a book, borrow a book, but above all, read. 😀

How do you read your books?

Er, no, which is why I’m hiding behind my Kindle. 😀 But my books are, thank goodness.

The old saying: “never judge a book by its cover,” is true, but alas beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you don’t have a halfway decent cover, then readers are most likely, however good it is, to pass your work  by.

As a species we rely an awful lot on appearances. Shallow? You bet, but such is human nature. As a child I was often made aware that my appearance didn’t fit in with the norm, whatever that might be. That said, I have to thank my detractors, since I’d probably never have become a writer otherwise. Escapism into books, and from there into my own worlds, set the pattern for my writing life.

So, onwards, and hopefully upwards. May your journey through life be filled with blessings, and may all your dreams (the good ones) come true. 😀
