Day Twenty-Five of the 111 Day Writer’s Journey


DAY 25: On the Page

I am a writer who has no interest in electronic books. I fight the ultimate shift to a digital age with every fiber of my being. Is downloading a 300 page novel onto a lightweight, portable device more convenient? Sure, but I’d much rather have a creation I can hold, one that gets worn over time, and passed down through generations. As I intend to do with this favorite:

Expected One

There’s a palpable electricity when I hold a book in my hands, as though I have a deeper appreciation of all the hard work and passion that went into the creation. I love going to book stores or libraries and flipping through pages. I treasure the handwritten letters I received from friends and the one I have that my great-great grandmother wrote 116 years ago.

I understand and expect that digital versions of my novels will be necessary upon publication. However, I’d much rather hope that a young girl reads my stories, keeps signed copies on her bookshelf, and passes the well-loved collection to her children.

I am a writer, singer, jewelry designer, and theatre enthusiast. I use various forms of artistic expression for personal reflection, community discussion and creative inspiration. My premiere novel encapsulates all of the above. Follow along on my journey towards an artistic career!

  1. Another lovely blog post, Kelly. I read my first digital book about a month ago and, yes, that artificial book iwas convenient, but it definitely didn’t provide the same tactile and sentimental experience of holding a real book.
