To have a gift of words is, a wonderful blessing. By writing those words in a book, you can reach people all over the world, be an influence for love, peace, and understanding. In the process you create worlds that delight and entertain others.
I heard several years ago that a story does not point you “there” it puts you “there.” To think of it as a form of transportation.
Well, having just finished a book titled Fields of Fire by Ryan Steck, I can honestly say I believe the statement above to be true. While reading this book I was transported to a place I had never been, seemed like I was in the middle of the people shooting at people, and discovered through the writers clues some very evil people had invented something to harm many people all over the world. It was a fast paced, gripping, page turner novel. I can’t give away the secrets of the book, but I can tell you, it is worth reading.
This was the first time I realized a book is like a form of transportation. In books we meet the leading characters that we like and then we meet people we don’t like. People we call bad. And while we are reading the book, the writer takes us by the hand and carries us into the world they created. And for the most part we don’t want the book to end.
Truly a writer entertains the reader and transports them into new adventures.
