We all draw inspiration from somewhere, and if we're avid writers, I feel like our inspiration often comes from other authors. So who's your favorite author? What about their work inspires your writing? Are they a published author, or a well-known blogger?
I used to read a lot of classic literature, which is where I feel my writing style really developed. I don't now if it's the vocabulary I developed, or the just the style that I write, but I don't feel like I could be an effective blogger (it's a good thing I'm not interested in that, anyway). When I write online, I tend to try and say what I need to say, and not necessarily let my personality shine through completely, which I think is opposite what bloggers tend to do.
However, author-wise, Kurt Vonnegut is still one of my favorites to this day. His dry wit and humor makes his novels a joy to read, and that much more entertaining, in my opinion. On the humor side of things, I enjoy anything by David Sedaris. His novels are composed of memoirs and his take on the world around him, and I find them hilarious. He has a unique way of perceiving things, and I love seeing the world through his "eyes" when I read his work. His work would inspire me to write exactly how I feel and see things if I ever went the route of memoirs, I suppose!
