Dickens

Postby WriteSoon » Sat Dec 29, 2012 4:16 pm

In the hope of gathering some Christmas spirit, I read Dickens' [i]A Christmas Carol[i]. I've not read Dickens in many years, and was surprised at how much I've missed his writing style. I found myself taking notes for my writing journal to revisit certain quotes and even to incorporate some into my conversations. It also gave me a perfect whimsical way of reminding family not to bring up unpleasant conversations during the holiday. I posted the following on beautiful card stock for the centerpieces:

"Anyone who chooses to discuss the fiscal cliff, gun control or the recent election shall be boiled in his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart."

Not only did it get some great laughs, but it was a lighthearted way of making the point--and surprisingly everyone complied!

I've always enjoyed reading Dickens, and A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite stories.

Dickens is by far my favourite writer of prose. I especially love "A Tale of Two Cities" and "Christmas Carol". Perfect characters and perfect stories. But above all, I adore his style of writing.
