Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

People between the ages of twenty and thirty read a good deal. After thirty their reading drops off and by forty is confined to each person’s special subject, newspapers, and magazines; so that the most important part of one’s audience, and that which should be mainly written for, consists of specialists and people between twenty and thirty.
