Well here we are again with so much time having passed since our last posting. Time seems to get away from you when your workload at your job increases, when the end of a semester at school consumes all your time, when the holidays are fast approaching, and even when a sibling is about to have a baby. Luckily a love of books is one consistent thing in life. If you love books like we do then you can understand how welcome that feeling is when your hectic life finally cuts you some slack and you have nothing to do except curl up with a book and read.
I found this quote in the current book we are both working on and fell in love with it. We have written before about why we write, but this one spoke to us even more. The truth behind every author’s aspirations. Writing commemorates life, either an imagined one or your reality. It is a way to memorialize your life on paper. Once the words floating around your mind become visible ink on a piece of paper, they are further committed to memory. Published or not, experienced or amateur, those of us who write all crave the same thing. To have our words remembered long after we are gone.
