Thursday Thirteen #100

A couple weeks ago for Weekly Geeks #13 assignment, I posted photos sans names of the authors who have influenced my own writing. Today I'm going to repost the photos with the names. I couldn't decide which four of the sixteen to leave off so...sue me. :)

Thirteen (plus three) of the Writers Who Have Most Influenced My Own Writing

Ray Bradbury

Alice Hoffman

Stephen King


Maya Angelo

Tony Morrison

Walt Whitman

Flannery O'Conner

David Lynch

Isabelle Allende

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Joyce Carol Oates

Joseph Campbell

Janet Burroway
(Her textbook, Fiction Writing, has been my bible for over 15 years but I blush to say I've not read her fiction yet. I seem to remember checking the library catalog for them while reading it the first time and finding them unavailable. But I've not checked recently. In fact I've not checked my current library system ever. About time I rectify that.)

Bob Dylan

A. S. Byatt

Great list. Such a wide varitey of people.

I think King is the only one I've actually read though. (and this is the second TT I've seen his picture on today. -grin-)

Some wonderful authors you site. Personally I enjoy Stephen King most of them all.

My TT is up here.

Haven't heard of Janet Burroway's Fiction Writing. I'll have to check it out. And Bob Dylan, too? Interesting.

I've heard of most of them, but haven't read as many of them as I think I should. Maybe it's time to take a trip to the library.

Great TT!
