“God preserve us from writers who regurgitate what they have learnt from books! It is people’s secrets we want to know — it is the natural history of the human heart that we have been trying to put down for a thousand years and everyone must and can leave their contribution.”
Many presents under the tree. Days (and even weeks) of anticipation, and then the bonanza Christmas morning — the joys (and chaos) of having three daughters, all home for the holiday.
And this lovely quote from Advice to Writers in my email in-box. So perfect.
Merry Christmas to you!
