I Mean, Think About It

There are an infinite amount of worlds and perspectives in literature. I can't wait to pick up a book and get away!

I love this quote from George R.R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire, otherwise know as the Game of Thrones books.

I’ve known people who don’t read.  It boggles my mind, really.  Because, like this quote points out, that means they only get the one life they’re currently living.

Not that I hate my life, I’m a very lucky girl.  But I can’t imagine being so incurious that I could be satisfied without ‘trying on’ other lives, other situations and emotions.

I think that’s why I write as well.  The world is full of infinite possibilities.  How can you not explore them?

Of course, I should also mention that we’re mere hours away from the Season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones.

And there was great joy throughout the kingdom…

      1. I read a tweet of his, or an article a while ago, where George RR Martin said that HBO was bugging him to write faster. He said that every time someone ordered him to write he would just play video games. Isn’t that great? But I agree with you….enough already!
