Certainly, I've procrastinated, but I look upon procrastination as a time of mental codification, when you're writing in your head. Eventually, even if it's a hiatus of a few months, I begin writing again.(less)

First, the feeling of accomplishment that comes when you finish something you truly believe has value. Equally important is the feedback I've gotten from the children who have read The Crystal Navigator and liked it enough to write me letters. Those letters are jewels.(less)

Mona Lisa’s Ghost

“Maybe in her hands the painting will finish itself,” said Leonardo.
‘Finish itself,’ thought Lucy. ‘Maybe, the painting needs to be looked at and appreciated. Maybe all creations- books, music, plays, dance-are not truly finished until they are understood by an audience.’
Excerpt from Mona Lisa’s Ghost

“Take my camel, dear,' said my aunt Dot, climbing down from that animal on her return from high Mass.”
Rose Macaulay, The Towers of Trebizond

Rose Macaulay
“The superior thing, in this as in other departments of life, was to be late. Lateness showed that serene contempt for the illusion we call time which is so necessary to ensure the respect of others and oneself. Only the servile are punctual...”
Rose Macaulay , Mystery at Geneva

J.M. Barrie
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

P.G. Wodehouse
“It was one of the dullest speeches I ever heard. The Agee woman told us for three quarters of an hour how she came to write her beastly book, when a simple apology was all that was required.”
P.G. Wodehouse, The Girl in Blue
