Open a novel because you have to and you’ll immediately space out because of boredom, or a lack of motivation.

Thousands of words…meaningless on tan -white paper, there should be something special about them, shouldn’t there? Maybe a quote that sticks with you for the rest of your life, or a character that you can relate to. Nope. Just another book, whose 200 pages you have to read between now and next week, all the while trying to analyze its deeper meaning; the tan pages filled with a rainbow of highlighters, each representing something different. The millimeter high scribbles etched onto the paper, just hoping that somewhere in those miniscule paragraphs of analysis you will have written something awe-inspiring and maybe worthy of some recognition for your efforts.

Open a novel because you want to and you’ll immediately be immersed in the author’s voice, turning to the next page to see what happens.

Every word, a clue in the overall plot of the narrator; in your mind, the movie rolls and you barley notice the words in front of you. You notice the art that is within the literature and appreciate the deeper meaning, and relate to their problems in some way. Often times you are saddened when you finish it. The story has come to its end and with that you come to your own conclusion. That the written word is timeless and the book is there for another day.
