Paulo Coelho, Orson Scott Card, Jorge Luis Borges, and John Green. These are all household names for their excellent works of literary fiction. They also have one other thing in common: today, August 24th, is their birthday. Yes — albiet on different years — all four of these heavyweights were born today!
Is August 24th your birthday too? Perhaps you should try your hand at a little novel writing! Novel writing month (November) is right around the corner. Why not? You may very well be the next great August 24 author.
Happy birthday, Paulo Coelho, Orson Scott Card, Jorge Luis Borges, and John Green! Our favorite quotes after the jump.
