The Iliad and the Odyssey is definitely something that’s had an effect on me since before I even read it as a whole. I’ve always had a love of myth and after being introduced to this epic in middle school I’ve had a love and appreciation for poetry. Besides the wonderful plot and characterization, it shows you all the rules you can break in writing! I now nominate @littlegiantmonsters to participate in the 7 days of books that inspire you challenge! I’d love to know what inspires The Cryptid Cases!
