"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have ecome 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

I've spent part of the past 2 days tidying my office. It's now neatened up beyond my wildest expectations...so I'm off to the cottage for a while to write.
Although I occupy my office when doing various tasks--research, editing, nonfiction writing, email reading, website admin, streaming audio listening--I don't acutally write novels in it.
