C.S. Lewis- Writing Inspiration

Hello all! As a writer, I have many inspirations. My favorite inspiration, however, is C.S. Lewis. So, why exactly is he my favorite? One reason is that he is able to explore many different subjects. The Chronicles of Narnia, for example is a series of fantasy novels that happen to be one of my favorites and the favorites of millions around the globe. These novels are fun, captivating, and beat Twilight or any other fantasy series by any standard. Not only did C.S. Lewis write fantasy, but he wrote theology as well. Books like Mere Christianity, the Screwtape Letters, and the Great Divorce are a few theological books about Christianity by C.S. Lewis himself. As a Christian, these books are so helpful for my faith. It's incredible how one man could have such talent and insight. One neat thing about C.S. Lewis is that he was best friends with another writing inspiration of mine, J.R.R. Tolkien. C.S. Lewis was a great person, and will forever remain one of my greatest writing inspirations. To finish off this post, here are a few quotes from C.S. Lewis

England Obsession....
         We all have our little obsessions. For some people it's fashion. Others, it could be something like the Hunger Games. For me, it's England. England is a beautiful country that I have always wanted to visit. Not only is it beautiful, but it's full of culture. I just adore reading and looking at pictures about how people of England live. I love the business of the tiny shops in the little towns, the accents that I try to imitate, and the rainy days that are perfect for reading or watching Downton Abbey. England has stolen my heart and I am determined to get there one day. Check out a few pictures of England from my Pinterest board

Cottages in Shaftesbury, England- I think I could live here!

England by the sea- So gorgeous!

Don't you just love these little cottages in Cotswolds, England?

Love all the lights in Cambridge, England

A lovely little cafĂ© somewhere in England
And I couldn't leave out the classic picture of London, England!- I wonder if you can really use that phone booth.
