Sometimes I get stuck simply because I hang out with authors who write so exceptionally well. And I kind of don’t, at least not at first.
The late Dorothy L. Sayers—English crime writer, playwright, classical language translator, and Christian apologist—is one of my favorites.
She also has a delightful sense of snark.
Just the thing for a dreary Monday!
“A human being must have occupation, if he or she is not to become a nuisance to the world.”
So maybe it’s a good thing that some people live for video games?
“The English language has a deceptive air of simplicity; so have some little frocks; but they are both not the kind of thing you can run up in half an hour with a machine.”
No kidding. Effortless writing only looks that way.
Now doesn’t this just make your day!
“None of us feels the true love of God till we realize how wicked we are. But you can’t teach people that—they have to learn by experience.”
Indeed. And God, being gracious, bides His time.
Happy Monday, friends.
