Kitten Scribbles

(words, words, words)

"And LaMotte. Did she keep a journal?"

"Not as far as we know. Almost certainly not. She wrote to one of her nieces advising against it. It's a rather good letter. 'If you can order your Thoughts and shape them into Art, good; if you can live in the obligations and affections of Daily Life, good. But do not get into the habit of morbid Self-examination. Nothing so unfits a woman for producing good work, or for living usefully.'"

-- from Possession, by A. S. Byatt

As for me, in November I do nanowrimo. In order to make a living, I play with electrons. The rest of the time, I read. Or natter on about what I read.
