There are many people, throughout history, that I find inspirational and/or admirable. I admire Picasso and Van Gogh, Jane Austen and Shakespeare, Plato and Socrates, Kurt Cobain and George Carlin, and the list goes on. It is very difficult for me to pick one person that I would like to teach me, but if forced I would pick H. P. Lovecraft. I absolutely love his style of writing and his "voice" in said writing. The language he uses is very descriptive without being excessively wordy. I would like to learn writing from him, not to write horror, but to mature my style and voice.
