Starting to Write

Category: Miscellaneous :: Permalink

Our first efforts with the pen are servile imitations. It requires much experience and exercise of writing before we can write like ourselves, and not like our favourite author, the newspaper, a Government form, or the advertisement on the outside of a cereal packet. — Austin Farrer, A Study in St Mark, p. 32.
