I can’t consider myself an amazing writer. I just love to write, so I do. Sometimes I write a line that I think…ohhh that is so good. How did I come up with such a great line?! It sometimes just pops into my head the same way a poem does. I have a thought and then the verbal diarrhea just flows all over the paper. Great imagery, I love that line too.
It’s hard not to stop and reread those beautiful amazing quotes. They are perfection on the page, a literary genius wrapped up in the packaging of a novel. They can be hard to find, so much research, but these nuggets of golden words are completely worth it.
Right now I am reading “Dark Places” by Gillian Flynn. It was recommended to me ages ago and I always meant to read it especially after I read “Gone Girl”. For some reason the title escaped me until I watched the trailer starring Charlise Theron and Nick Hoult. I am one of those avid readers that if a movie comes out that I want to see that was from a book, I must read the book before watching the movie. I have to. It’s a problem actually.
So I saw the trailer for this movie and I thought, “Holy crap I need to read that book!” I wasn’t even through the first page when I read the most perfect line ever.
I was not a lovable child, and I’d grown into a deeply unlovable adult. Draw a picture of my soul, and it’d be a scribble with fangs.
I love golden nuggets like this, something that makes me read the line over and over and over again. It’s moments like these that I scream, somewhat silently because I am not a crazy person, that I LOVE READING SO DAMN MUCH!!!
What’s your favorite nugget of literary gold that you have read lately. I need more books on my to do list…..
