Or I'll take myself off and write something completely unrelated for a few days. When I come back, I am raring to go!(less)

“Now the woman, she was another story. Her instinct was strong. She had sensed the darkness. But she was curious. Afraid. Soon she would return, because she had to. All she had to do was lift the lid. It would dispose of her in a little while. Once night had fallen. All it wanted was the child.”
Beverley Lee, The Making of Gabriel Davenport

“With trembling legs, Beth forced herself to stand. The smoke rose, spreading in a slow, measured ebb and flow. It looked like it was breathing. She was beyond fear now, trapped in that primeval place of fight or flight. She”
Beverley Lee, The Making of Gabriel Davenport

“When we love something we never give up.”
Beverley Lee, A Shining in the Shadows
tags: hope, love

“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov

“Is it fair to have given us the memory of what was and the desire of what could be when we must suffer what is?”
Neil Jordan, The Dream of a Beast

“Scared is what you're feeling. Brave is what you're doing.”
Emma Donoghue, Room

“It must often be so, Sam, when things are in danger: some one has to give them up, lose them, so that others may keep them.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

“One tiny Hobbit against all the evil the world could muster. A sane being would have given up, but Samwise burned with a magnificent madness, a glowing obsession to surmount every obstacle, to find Frodo, destroy the Ring, and cleanse Middle Earth of its festering malignancy. He knew he would try again. Fail, perhaps. And try once more. A thousand, thousand times if need be, but he would not give up the quest.”
The Return of the King
