On Writing by Stephen King
“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
Stephen King

“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
George Orwell

Kiersten White
“Eyes like streams of melting snow, cold with the things she does not know. Heaven above and Hell beneath, liquid flames to hide her grief. Death, death, death with no release. Death, death, death with no release.”
Kiersten White, Paranormalcy

Alan Bennett
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
Alan Bennett, The History Boys

Alan Bennett
“What she was finding also was how one book led to another, doors kept opening wherever she turned and the days weren't long enough for the reading she wanted to do.”
Alan Bennett, The Uncommon Reader

“A book is a device to ignite the imagination.”

Hi! So sorry I've been missing your comments. I think I need to adjust my notification settings. Happy belated new year to you too!

C. Happy new year 2019, Anstice! I hope you see these eventually. :)

C. Tizzy, I have been reporting what happened in Manchester since I heard the news last night. I know a new Mom doesn't have a lot of time to chat in our group but if you have a moment to say a few words, tell us how England is feeling, it would bring a firsthand perspective. Every parent must be hugging their children even if they aren't in the north. Caring from central Canada, Carolyn. https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

C. Hello Tizzy. If your wedding is recent: congratulations on your marriage! The portrait of you in a veil and flowers behind, is pretty. I see your birthday is recent. Happy birthday to you as well, summer girl! Carolyn. https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2015/0...
