I originally posted this on August 25, 2009. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it again had I not been working on migrating and collating old blogs (tumblr/WP) onto this site.
Earlier this year, I bought a copy of a book with this cover. I don’t know if my subconscious remembered, but it was certainly the neatest cover choice for my copy of ‘If You Want to Write’ by Brenda Ueland. Funny how things happen.
“Yes, I saw Twilight – my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!”
