There's something delicious about writing those first few words of a story. You can never quite tell where they will take you. Mine took me here, where I belong. *

There are things which will never come out right , or be said right , or even be about right things. But you must remember , that those things, when you first spell them into words , are yours - and will never be taken from you. Every word you choose to like and restore to your memory , of things , places and people with whom you never quite belonged is viciously yours and you will never able to disassociate yourself with it. Thank God for that. You in your words , written and spoken , jumbled , misspelt letters are truly going to fashion yourself as whatever you can be , or are . Them and your imagination , is all that will ever truly be yours.

* from Miss Potter - the movie , based on the life of children's book author - Beatrix Potter
