LEGO writers

It’s no secret that I love LEGO, so I had to share this Flavorwire blog about famous writers as LEGO.

Great minds think alike as they say. Here are a couple of LEGO writers I created for my LEGO stories series.

First up is William Shakespeare re-enacting that famous scene from Hamlet.

And here is gothic horror queen Mary Shelley the moment inspiration struck for Frankenstein one dark and stormy night.

Charles Dickens used to love performing on stage. Here he is doing what he did best. If you haven’t already, check out the film The Invisible Woman about Dickens’ affair with Nelly Ternan. Ralph Fiennes gives an incredible performance as the legendary author.

Another film worth watching is Kill Your Darlings, which focuses on Beat Generation writers Lucien Carr, William S. Burroughs, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. Quick fact: Kerouac’s On The Road is one of my favourite books of all time.

“Quoth the raven, Nevermore” wrote Edgar Allen Poe in his most famous poem.

This one might be a stretch, but it is an OLD MAN at the SEA that kind of resembles Hemingway.

Here’s my friend Matt Imrie’s tribute to Terry Pratchett that he posted on Twitter. (Check out Matt’s awesome book blog here)
