I think this is FANTASTIC, because it gives me the chance to ask you this question:
Are there any novels, poems, or plays which make you feel closer to someone in or out of your life? Why do they make you feel that way, and how do you think you could incorporate it into your writing?
Reading and writing makes me feel closer to my late mother every time, because we shared a passion for it. However, she loved Star Trek and cheesy romance novels the most. I remember staring at the covers while she read, wishing I could read too. When I write, I try to incorporate that passion.
