— Harper Lee

  1. I had a conversation with a friend the other day that was strikingly similar to this one. It basically came down to this quote. couldn’t agree more.

  2. That’s awesome! Did you then write about it?

    I had a teacher one time say to me that a good writer write’s for the marketplace, for what sells. I thought to myself, well I guess I will never be a writer.
