Quote of the day: A. A. Milne on authorship

‘For myself I have now no faith in miraculous conception.  I have given it every chance.  I have spent many mornings at Lord’s hoping that inspiration would come, many days on golf courses; I have even gone to sleep in the afternoon, in case inspiration cared to take me by surprise.  In vain.  The only way I can get an “idea” is to sit at my desk and dredge for it.  This is the real labour of authorship with which no other labour in the world is comparable.’ – A. A. Milne
