The old masters

I have just started reading a book on writing by Maeve Binchy and I have started laughing just into the first chapter. That is the thing I find amazing about some of the writers I admire. They are so good at their craft that as soon as you sink into one of their books, a familiar smile finds its way onto your face.

I am also reading a book by Dick Francis, another author I admire and once again I am amazed at his skill. You get so drawn into the life of his chracters that you can almost feel their pain.

What a joy to be able to read and also to be able to learn from those who have gone on ahead.

Thank You, Father for the gift of writing.
