A British artist/illustrator living in China.

My Goodreads ratings are purely based on a book's entertainment value, not literary merit (so pot boilers often get more stars than worthy tomes).

Ratings:
* I'll never get these hours of my life back. Not necessarily badly written, but really, really irritating.
** Not the worst way to spend the day, but not something I enjoyed.
*** Good, but I wouldn't recommend it particularly.
**** Great: Read this!
***** Amazing. A book I'll read over and over, but usually for personal reasons so probably not worth you picking up.

Robert Graves
“There's no money in poetry, but there's no poetry in money, either.”
Robert Graves

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Nicolas Chamfort
“A man should swallow a toad every morning to be sure of not meeting with anything more revolting in the day ahead.”
Nicolas Chamfort

Lily Tomlin
“The trouble with being in the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.”
Lily Tomlin

Elmore Leonard
“Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”
Elmore Leonard
