Comment of the Week

I spotted these wise words in the comment box of agent Sarah Davies' blog. They are the words of Blythe Woolston, whose website can be found here.

Secretly, in my heart of hearts, I write to please myself, and it is only a happy accident when it pleases anyone else.

Amen, sister, from all of the writers who write from their hearts.


  1. Hi Michael, my librarian gave me this website to look at
    Is please the right word?
    I would say I write to connect
    hoping I have caught a thread of something universal....

  2. An apt quote! If we don't write to please ourselves, why bother?

  3. And the truth is spoken! Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is a fantastic view of the situation, I don’t think I’ve quite seen it from that perspective before.


If comments be the food of love, comment on. Give me excess of them... (With apologies to The Bard)
