A Short Thought For The Day

Having recently posted my thoughts about ‘Devil’s Peak’ by Deon Meyer, I have since been contacted by Lucy, at publishers Hodder & Stoughton, to see if I would accept a copy of Deon’s latest book, ‘Thirteen Hours’.

This is great, as I really enjoyed ‘Devil’s Peak’, so I can’t wait to get my hands on Deon’s latest offering, featuring his character, Detective Inspector Benny Griessel.

Meantime, I would like to share a short thought from Deon, that seems to make perfect sense to any author trying to break through in the fiction world:

“I still believe that short stories are the best way to learn the craft of writing.

Short stories teach you a lot about story structure – and you have limited space to develop character and plot.”

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
