A Room of My Own

Posted on January 25th, 2013 in Stories





““A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”

― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own





And thanks to my mom and sister, I finally do.

“Therefore I would ask you to write all kinds of books, hesitating at no subject however trivial or however vast. By hook or by crook, I hope that you will possess yourselves of money enough to travel and to idle, to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream.”

― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

Stay tuned for a  week of whimsy, Invisible Friends!
