It’s all about authors today on Top Ten Tuesday! Specifically, authors we’d love to meet or can’t believe we’ve met, etc. If you’ve been here on the blog for a half a minute, you know that I’m one of the stewards of the Christian Fiction Readers’ Retreat (find out about this year’s event in Cincy) – a gathering of Christian fiction authors and readers. Last year, our inaugural year, I met so many authors I could hardly believe it! Dreams coming true right and left… and when BECKY WADE walked up to the author registration table, I lost all ability to form words in the middle of my spiel 😛
In next week’s post, I’m going to talk a little more about #CFRR2016 and some of the fangirling I did there! But for today, I’m going to show you my (mostly impossible) bucket list of authors I’d like to meet. The reason it’s mostly impossible? Well, they’re all dead 😛
BUT … I have hope that one day I’ll get to walk through heaven with several of these authors and chat about Jesus and fiction and why I don’t like tea. haha!
“But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. “
“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.”
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery
“But if you call me Anne, please call me Anne with an ‘e’.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder
“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Where you tend a rose my lad, a thistle cannot grow.”
“I’ll tell you how the sun rose, a ribbon at a time.”
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
“There was clearly nothing to do but flop down on the shabby little couch and howl.”
“An admirable exercise my friend. Continue it.”
What about you? Who are some of the authors on your bucket list to meet?
