Back in the Swing of Things

“The way to rock oneself back into writing is this. First gentle exercise in the air. Second the reading of good literature.

It is a mistake to think that literature can be produced from the raw. One must get out of life…one must become externalised; very, very concentrated, all at one point, not having to draw upon the scattered parts of one’s character, living in the brain.”

― Virginia Woolf, A Writer’s Diary
