Monday Meme: 15 Most Influential Writers

Kate Hart
The Meme: Borrowed from Amy Whipple

The Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors (poets included) who have always influenced you and will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes, and they don’t have to be listed in order of relevance to you.

The Twist: I decided to just do this stream of consciousness. I'm not even going to defend or explain my answers.
