Writing Inspiration #10

Theodor Seuss Geisel, popularly known as Dr. Seuss was a cartoonist and writer who wrote nothing less than 60 books. His children’s books got him much acclaimed fame and most of which you must surely be acquainted with in your childhood days.

Dr. Seuss invented quite some words that have found place in regular dialect, including the term ‘nerd’ that is used for a person who is exceedingly studious and socially boring. An interesting fact is that when publishing houses such as Random House and Houghton Mifflin challenged him to write a children’s classic using only 220 words, the author came up with ‘The Cat in the Hat’ that got him much-deserved recognition in children’s literature and confirmed that the genius was here to stay.

Here’s a great advice on writing from the author who filled our childhood with so many warm reading memories.

_Dr Seuss

I am planning on reading some of his books the coming month. Any suggestions? Do share them in the comments section below.

Happy reading till we meet next.

Until then, carpe diem! πŸ™‚

  1. I love your bio. πŸ˜ƒ
    I didn’t know he was a writer. I have come across many of his quotes on Twitter and social media. Really like those.
    I am not much into Children’s books, but would love to try. Coraline was the only children’s book that i have read yet, as an adult.


  2. I had such an awesome cat in the hat teddy when I was younger. He must still be lurking somewhere and I need to find him out! Really liked the info in this!
    Oh, also, did you ever get my email add? If you didn’t need it anymore that’s cool, just don’t like thinking you didn’t get it and it looking like I left you hanging!


      1. Ahh geez I must have got confused! Sorry, Asha! I thought at one point on WordPress you asked for my email address, so I think I sent it to you on Instagram haha! Must have been confusing! x


  3. Yertle the Turtle, the Sneetches, & Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Have fun reading, Asha. His books are so wonderful & something I gained a higher appreciation for once I got older. πŸ“šπŸ΅πŸŒ»~AnneπŸ’•


    1. Thank you abundantly, for the lovely recommendations, Anne. πŸ™‚ I am blissfully aware of how books shape us when we’ve grown up; especially the childhood ones.
      How happy am I to have my reading list all sorted for this month.
      I had an awesome time reading Wuthering Heights. Seems I can never love that book enough. What you reading currently, sweets?
