Thought of the Day: Monday 18th May

The writer must never attempt to impose himself upon his subject. He must not try to mold it according to what he believes his readers or editors want to read. His initial task is to come to know his subject intimately, to understand its every aspect, to let it fill his mind. Then at some turning point, the subject takes command and the true and the true act of creation begins….The discipline of the writer is to learn to be still and listen to what his subject has to tell him.
