Have you ever read a book, a fiction book, that made you want to be a better person?
I’ve read plenty of novels over the years that stayed with me. There’ve been characters I couldn’t get out of my head for days, weeks, even years after I finished the last page—cough-Twilight-cough. But only a select few have made me question the person I am and the person I wish to be.
When I stop gazing in the mirror, I think of the author who wrote this book. How her collection of words on the pages were so powerful. That’s the type of writer I want to be.
I hope I am someday.
Meanwhile I will strive to overcome my imperfections and be a better person.
