What one writes

Small Journal

"The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible."  - Vladimir Nabakov

"If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write
it." - Toni Morrison

The pictures here are Golden Age fairy tale illustrations by H.J. Ford (1860-1941) and John D. Batten (1860-1932). I could tell you which fairy tales they are from...but I'd rather leave you to imagine stories of your own. Those are the stories I want to read. Those are the stories I want to write.
