Thought for the Weekend - George Orwell



It seems like an age since I've put up a 'Thought for the Weekend' - and maybe that's because of late, like so many other things in my life, the weekend has become submerged into the murky waters of  'what day is it again??'  when I should be asking myself much more important questions like, why am I spending more of my life in the fictional world of writing, than in the real world of living? 

Call it post writing syndrome, but after finishing the first draft of 'The Doll's House' last week, (all 120,000 words of it!!!) I find myself with a tremendous amount of unallocated time, and it's weird because I've gotten so used to having none, that I'm like a blind lunatic wondering what to do next, with a 'to do list' as long as any decent piece of string, and not a whole lot of interest in shortening it - if that makes any sense! 

So in an effort to bring some sense to it all, and after reading ''72 of the Best Quotes for Writers'," I'll hand you over to the master himself, Mr George Orwell below!

“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”



George Orwell


Have a lovely weekend everyone!!!
