"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Where I come from, there's a tradition/superstition that whatever you do on New Year's Day, you'll be doing all the year long--so best to focus on things you truly enjoy! Today, therefore, I'm eating delicious meals, sipping exquisite beverages, writing magnificent prose, reading a captivating book, watching an outstanding film, and devoting myself to husband and canines.

And blogging!
