Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. He was (and still is) one of my favorite authors. His sense of fantasy and whimsy is unparalleled, and his ability to include lessons in his messages made his work both enjoyable and educational.
Every year, “Read Across America” day is celebrated on March 2 in his honor.
Today, I’d like to present this quote by him, not from his published stories, but spoken by him when asked about his life and works.
Write a piece of fiction inspired by a limited and focused view. Examples include (but aren’t limited to) writing about something observed when peering through:
- a telescope
- a microscope
- a keyhole
- fence pickets
- window blinds
- hotel door peephole
Write your story on your blog and put your link in the comments section below. We encourage you to visit these links, then comment on and share the posts.
My submission, decidedly un-Seussian, can be found here. Hope you enjoy it. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
