Margaret Atwood

“Perhaps I have reached the age at which those who have been through the wash-and-spin cycle a few times become seized by the notion that their own experience in the suds may be relevant to others.  Perhaps I wish to say:  Look behind you.  You are not alone.  Don’t permit yourself to be ambushed.  Watch out for the snakes.  Watch out for the Zeitgeist – it is not always your friend.  Keats was not killed by a bad review.  Get back on the horse that threw you.

– Margaret Atwood, Negotiating with the Dead:  A Writer on Writing (Anchor Books, 2003)
