It would be a superlative world if the collective “we” would fess up. We’ve done posts before that were meant to inspire. We’ve quoted some of the most beloved, some of the most “important” writers in history. But let’s face it — not every “great” writer has been read by the masses. We wish that were true, but one brief gaze at lists like this might give you an indication of just how many truly gifted writers have published during the past century and still haven’t been widely read. Oh, sure, to our professors and like-minded literary-loving friends we may fib and say we’ve read the greats, but honestly, there are just some “classics” that we haven’t tackled yet.
So with this inspirational post, we’ve quoted writers who you might be more familiar with. Sit back and read the wisdom that comes from steampunk, fantasy, horror and yes, even literary novelists. What do you think, LitStackers? Are your favorite writers on this list? We want to hear from you!
