Influences…

In keeping with the previous post, I do want to say this, but it’s more “broad” than tying it into the writing prompt…

I think that is one of the neatest things to see/read, is the picking of the minds of people and finding out what their influences have been, or what styles they may enjoy.
Neil Peart has a section on his website titled “Bubba’s Book Club”, where he recaps some of the books that he has read, commenting/suggesting the ones that he especially likes. Stephen King has mentioned the authors that he enjoyed growing up. Musicians are well documented for saying where they were influenced “when they were coming up” and learning how to play… the styles, the sounds, the techniques or the showmanship.
It has also been surprising for me to “do my homework”, and uncover some great things that I otherwise may never have found. I will admit, the exact opposite could easily be said, that I may not like “the influence”… but it is still a discovery that I am grateful for making…
