Teaser Tuesday – On Writing
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Finally…as usual, after reading 3 books by different authors, it’s now time to read something from my number 1 author, Mr. Stephen King
Right now I’m reading On Writing, a memoir by Stephen King. I’ve reached page 80, it is such an inspirational book.
My teaser comes from page 54
(I took time to choose today’s teaser because there are so many good lines in this book)
I took my fair share of English Lit classes in my two remaining years at Lisbon, and my fair share of composition, fiction and poetry classes in college, but John Gould taught me more than any of them, and in no more than ten minutes.
And another lines from page 56
Once you know what the story is and get it right – as right as you can, anyway – it belongs to anyone who wants to read it. Or criticize it.
