There are so many writing styles out there and all good. But in your opinion which one would you see as the next Margaret Mitchell or Charles Dickens?
Not sure I would like to be next Margaret Mitchell, but sure wouldn't mind being next P.D. Grimes, Anne Perry, Anne McCaffrey, Diana Gabaldon, or Mary Stewart. I realize they are all contemporary (sort of) writers and not perhaps quite the level you were looking for in terms of having stood the test of time to be declared writers of great literature, so perhaps I could aspire to be the next C.S. Lewis, or Tennessee Williams?
Margaret Mitchell and Charles Dickens had a style encompassing the times they lived in...
...you can't compare, really. ;D
Now that the printing press is open and free to anyone who wants to write a novel and spend a couple hundred bucks on a first run, or even put something up in PDF form on Amazon...only time will tell.
The market is so diverse, so large...that there most likely will never be a mega novelist superstar.
I think C.C has it in him , if he really concentrates on his talent and go for a novel; his creativity/imagination is awesome. I think Pest would make great for a humorous novelist.
haha nazi. ;D
I'm with you on that, they just might be able to beat G|M's work. ;D
Hey, I heard that. Might be? I'm sure you are working on a sci fi that is mind blowing my weird and wonderful freak of frenzy!
When GlM/Ixxy get's their book done, I want a signed copy! Love ya my friend!
At some point I'm going to do a parody of sci fi, but at the moment the most sci fi-ish thing I'm working on isn't sci fi at all, just merely taking cues to tech around us already and explaining where it's going.
Teresa, seems like the pressure is on! Write it soon so someone can do a hub on the opening line...which is definitely going to be memorable!
Yes I'd go with Teresa and Shades, but Christoph Reilly could definitely mix it up too.
I like Shadesbreath a lot too. Did you guys check his latest? 'Vlad the inhaler'? That was definitely classic material!
one thing is for sure it will not be ..... working myself up to another hub, but it may be days but I write it....... a book would be impossible for me....
I'd say Teresa McGurk, too, because I am sooo addicted to her 'It's Later Than You Think' hub series!
Definitely have to look into Ixxy, Shades, and Christoph Reilly. I love a great story teller.
I feel that Elena could compile a gorgeous anthology of all her love letters in conjunction with her photographs and be a long-running bestseller once published.
So those are my votes right now. Teresa and Elena.
I agree - and agree with her nominees, too!
But Teresa, for sure :-)

Is HubPages trying to discourage its writers and get them to quit writing?Every time I publish a hub my Hubber score goes down then it goes up by 1-2 points and then down by 1-2 points. Then when I am not on here for a day or two it goes down by more than 2 points. This is very...
