I just finished watching “House of Cards,” the Netflix original series that is actually quite captivating starting Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey. The character Tom Yates offered a fresh literary component, like a soft, sultry breeze coming in through the window of a highly-charged, emotional house.
It reminds me how much I cringed during Journalism class as I begrudgingly removed colorful adjectives and stuck with “Just the facts, ma’am.” I realized then how much I enjoy creative writing. And yet… when it comes right down to it, I notice that I now get bogged down in facts and, unlike Tom Yates, I forget to allow my words to flow gently across the page to fill my readers eyes and move across their lips as they are pulled into the essence of the writing.
Inspire me with your all-time favorite books, both fiction and non-fiction, and let’s get some colorful prose flowing here!
Further inspire me with your own short paragraph showcasing your creativity! 😀
