Dr. Seuss, famous for The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham, was a quirky one. When he had writer's block, he would go to a secret closet filled with hundreds of hats and wear them till inspiration hit.
"A new journey to be started.
A new promise to be fulfilled.
A new page to be written.
Go forth unto this waiting world with pen in hand, all you young scribes,
the open book awaits.
And above all else, be young.
For youth is your greatest weapon, your greatest tool.
Use it wisely." – Wonder Woman #62

No list of fun facts about great authors can be without the mention of Shakespeare, who is widely regarded as the greatest English writer of all time. So here goes!
Did you know that he coined the following terms?
1) dead as a doornail
2) all of a sudden
3) in a pickle
4) night owl
5) wear your heart on your sleeve
6) star-crossed lovers
7) off with his head
8) green-eyed monster
While the first three poem requests seemed to revolve around nostalgia and whimsical inclination, this week's trio boasts the theme of empowerment. Which is your favourite? Let us know! This gift service soon to be available on our website.
A fun fact about Ernest Hemingway, Nobel Prize winner for his book The Old Man and The Sea. He was a master of the art of narrative, which has had lasting influence over contemporary authors across the world.
DID YOU KNOW? A good friend of Hemingway was F. Scott Fitzgerald, who once wrote a ten-page letter to him advising how he should end his novel A Farewell To Arms. Ever eloquent and brief, Hemingway replied with three words, "kiss my ass."
