Rest in peace, Terry Pratchett

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 13, 2015, 12:16 AM

Yesterday my favorite author died, aged 66. I am neither family or friend, and yet I cried. The idea that I will never again pick up a new, pristine and unread book by him, quite frankly, sucks. Opening up the newest addition to my bookshelf was like a second Christmas, and at his most prolific it came around just about every year.

His imagination was tremendous, only overshadowed by the funny things he could do with English. I suspect he must have loved words a great deal, and possibly they loved him back. My copied of his books have cracked and loose spines, with nicks, bumps and yellowing pages. I do not forget the stories, but the delight I take in reading his English never fades.

His world could cheer me up when nothing else would, and for that I loved him. Reading his books made me want to write too, and for his skills I admired him.


Just because something is funny, doesn't mean it's not serious. Just because it's unreal, doesn't mean it's not true.


I will miss him.

I could spend hours looking at your gallery, omg *.* I'm sorry I'm a little too lazy to comment on each one of them so here's a general comment: You have incredible art, I really the colors you use and the way you use them and that each piece seems to have a soul. I look forward to seeing more of your art around here! :) (Smile)
