Margaret talks about the quest to write a best seller
The dictionary definite of Quest is ‘The act of seeking something.’
So what is it that writers seek?
The ultimate book?
A plot no-one has ever used before?
Perhaps all three?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to write a book like Gone With The Wind? A story that has stood the test of time and been read by millions worldwide. I Googled Best selling books of all time and this is the top ten of the 101 that came up:
A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens
The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R.Tolkien
The Hobbit – J.R.R.Tolkien
Dream of the Red Chamber – Tsao Hsueh-Chin
And Then There None – Agatha Christie
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – C.S.Lewis
She – H.Rider Haggard
The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown
The Catcher in the Rye – J.D.Salinger
Interesting? What would you add to that list?
