"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

Celebrity Owl

Shakespeare is back in place this morning.

He's a celebrity now, because today's newspaper published his highly flattering photograph. Kind of weird, retrieving the paper that had his photo and carrying it past the famous bird himself, who loomed up there on his branch watching my every move.

Now that he's a Very Important Bird, he might be copping a little attitude.
