“I’ve shoved a writing table by the biggest window in my sitting room. The only flaw in this arrangement is the constant temptation to go outside and walk over to the cliff’s edge … Writers ought to live far inland or next to the city dump, if they are ever to get any work done. Or perhaps they need to be stronger-minded than I am.”
– Juliet, writing to her editor, Sidney, in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows (2008)
Makes me smile. So very true.
