|The nostalgia is just insane|
Yes, it's the Goosebumps series that really got me hooked into reading. It opened up worlds in my mind and broadened my imagination far beyond what is expected of most 9 year olds. Before I was reading J.K. Rowling and Neil Gaiman, I was a hardcore R.L. Stein fan.
Funny thing was, Goosebumps wasn't really scary. Not even a little. But it was entertaining and wildly imaginative, despite its cliches and occasional predictability.
My point is, every writer starts out by being a reader. As time passes and my mind grows, I've come to appreciate the literary arts more and more. And someday, I want to write a novel I can be proud of, even if it sells just 10 copies.
