Tom Clancy passed away yesterday. The world has lost another great writer. And yet there are still footsteps in the sand for us to follow.
For those of us who put ink on a page, the work that is left behind by the wordsmiths that shuffle off this mortal coil ahead of us should be read as sign posts. Each book you’ve read, each story you’ve enjoyed that triggered the “wish I could write like that” twinge, those are sign posts leading onward saying: Here lie dreams. Follow them. Share them. Cause others to dream.
Or ,if you prefer, Hunt for your own Red October.
