Winslow in Love by Kevin Canty
I will tell you why I picked the book to read. I was looking for a quick read. The idea of the poet having a second chance, after not writing anything in a long time, got to me. He met a girl, who wore a dragon tattoo. He would be travelling across country and falling in love again. Teaching poetry at a school for creatives. These are the things that drew me to my purchase.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I am researching writers and how they write. For a short time, I had a writer's block, so the blank page, that Richard Winslow talks about struck a chord in me. As I read Winslow in Love, a very special thing also happened to me. I woke up from my writer's block and wrote a lot.
Poetry. Short Stories. Ideas for magazine articles.
Even though there are some parts of the book I cannot identify with, I found myself admiring the two travellers on the road towards love, understanding and survival. We have all met some people, whom are barely getting by, not by just monetary means, but by the sheer will to live. Richard actually did something great. I did not expect it to end that way. I really missed them for weeks after I finished it. Awesome read!
I hope that I can be so lucky to find an idea for writing a book some day.
