In A Brown Study, 3

May 13, 2016

This writer has been otherwise engaged in a brown study. Perchance I may quote from a letter written by Nathaniel Hawthorne to a friend in 1845, before he began to work on his novel, The House of Seven Gables. 

“Peradventure, I have reached that point in a writer’s life when he ceases to effervesce, and whatever I do thereafter must be done with leaden reluctance, and therefore had better be left undone.

Perhaps the writing muse takes off when the writer is beset with other concerns. Like Mr. Hawthorne, I hope I will awake one fine morning unbewitched.
