When I grow up, I want to write like…

I’ve always been a reader. Since I was three I could be found in close proximity to a book, even if I wasn’t able to read it. Over the years, I’ve come to admire a great number of writers, people who have ideas that are mind blowing and prose that make me want to weep with joy.

In other words, people I wish I could be like.

I debated how I wanted to do this post. Should I list off my favourite books and why I love them so? Should I give a list of authors and detail out what it is about their talent that I admire as much as I do?

Instead I decided to go with some examples of writing by the authors who I admire, who have influenced me in one way or the other. I’ll let you judge their merits for yourself.

Margaret Attwood (being Canadian, I’ve read a lot of her in university)

Robert Frost (I have incorporated Miles to go in my tattoo)



Joss Whedon (the man is brilliant)

Christopher Nolan (because he has some of the best dialogue)
