Have you ever read a book that was so amazing that you knew if you wrote hours a day for a thousand years you’d never be able to write something that good?
I got that feeling when I read the first two Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. It seemed like every word was chosen purposefully and they were all perfect. I loved it!
I’ve read other books and felt the same way but also a bit depressed. Like why bother? I eventually get over it and realize that I may never write something that amazing but I’m still having a good time.
Have you ever read a book and thought that? What was it? How did you feel?
