I enjoy writing and I allow myself the indulgence of writing without thinking and then I tidy up after it's typed up. If I cut any bits out I paste them into my scrap pages, just in case I use them in another book. Doing it this way allows the thoughts to flow freely and nothing is wasted.(less)

Quotes by Allyson R. Abbott  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Prolonged, indiscriminate reviewing of books is a quite exceptionally thankless, irritating and exhausting job. It not only involves praising trash but constantly inventing reactions towards books about which one has no spontaneous feeling whatever.' George Orwell”
Allyson R. Abbott, How To Write a Simple Book Review: It's easier than you think

“uncanny”
Allyson R. Abbott, Mistletoe Kisses & Christmas Wishes

“What is in question is a kind of book reviewing which seems to be more and more popular: the loose putting down of opinions as though they were facts, and the treating of facts as though they were opinions.' Gore Vidal”
Allyson R. Abbott, How To Write a Simple Book Review: It's easier than you think
