"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

The Day After Shrove Tuesday

It's Ash Wednesday, of course. I'm not eating meat today. In fact, I'm barely eating anything.

This was my dinner on Fat Tuesday: a puffy, sugary, chocolate-drizzled European pancake.

It's another quiet week here at the Lodge, after a busy weekend. Another busy one coming up. I received a small "weekender" type rolling suitcase for Christmas. It's getting a lot of use.
