“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior...Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them...It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.” ~ J.D.

Whenever I start to feel as though the writing avalanche has begun anew, I check out this photo. This is Gypsy Rose Lee, she of the stripping game, when she exchanged her boa and gloves for a typewriter and wrote mysteries. For a while she lived in a brownstone in NY with a variety of other literary types. Here she is killing off a character - and a perfect image of the writer at work, don't you think?

Love this picture of the famous Gypsy Rose Lee - following her career as a serial disrober, she took to writing. She lived in the January House (in NYC in Brooklyn, along with numerous other literary luminaries), to pen her murder mystery, The G String Murders (talk about writing what you know!). Kind of sums of the writing chaos, no?

Ken Kesey was an American author, best known for his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and as a counter-cultural figure who considered himself a link between the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the hippies of the 1960s. "I was too young to be a beatnik, and too old to be a hippie," Kesey said in a 1999 interview with Robert K. Elder.

Isaac Asimov's predictions for 2014, made in 1964: “Communications will become sight-sound and you will see as well as hear the person you telephone. The screen can be used not only to see the people you call but also for studying documents and photographs and reading passages from books. Synchronous satellites, hovering in space will make it possible for you to direct-dial any spot on earth, including the weather stations in Antarctica.” Click through

This is Charlotte Brontë’s earliest known effort at writing, a short story written for her sister Anne, the baby of the family. It it also the first of the little books made by the Brontë children and, as such, it does not reach the level of technical sophistication that they were later to achieve. The writing is a clumsy longhand, there is no title page or contents list and no attempt is made to imitate magazine format.

"Si je pouvais t'offrir le bleu secret du ciel, Brodé de lumière d'or et de reflets d'argent, Le mystérieux secret le secret éternel, De la vie et du jour, de la nuit et du temps, Avec tout mon amour je le mettrais à tes pieds. Mais moi qui suis pauvre et n'ai que mes rêves, Sous tes pas je les ai déroulés. Marche doucement car tu marches sur mes rêves" WB Yeats

"'People always think that happiness is a faraway thing,' thought Francie, 'something complicated and hard to get. Yet, what little things can make it up; a place of shelter when it rains--a cup of strong hot coffee when you're blue; for a man, a cigarette in contentment; a book to read when you're alone--just to be with someone you love. Those things make happiness.'" - Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
