Good role models are imperative. They give us something to aspire to, and someone to look up to. They can motivate us to do great work.
So that got us thinking: who are some famous authors' writing role models? Who most influenced their work? As children, which books did they stay up late at night to read?
The results were very interesting. Perhaps they will inspire you. At the very least, you'll have more books to add to your reading list!
Which authors influence YOUR writing? Let us know in the comments!
