The Author's Influence
****By Guest Blogger, CCM****
What's the Challenge? Choose two authors who's books you think give a strong reflection of humanity and show the INNOCENCE of humans for what they are and who they are.
Who's Invited to Participate? Anyone influenced by authors.....so......everyone!!
What's the Point? To give you a positive look on the world in which the authors lived, and as an added bonus, renewed hope from reviving some powerful messages that should never be lost.
My two authors would be John Steinbeck and Mitch Albom. The books would be 'Of Mice and Men' and 'Tuesdays with Morrie'.
Both of these books show how one man can look after another despite the worst of problems the other one has. These books show a bond of trust and character that can be displayed through the author's imagery and vividly creative word choice. Both main characters choose to take care of another when they are needed most. This is a lesson authors try to tell the reader; you should always be there for someone when they need you the most.
