This week my teaser lines come from The Shooting Party by Isabel Colegate, a book I've been meaning to read ever since 1985 when I saw the movie based on the novel. This quote comes very early in the book, on page 2:
"It's not a bad idea to get in the habit of writing down one's thoughts. It saves one having to bother anyone else with them."I've kept a diary or journal of some kind almost since I learned how to write. And this has always been one of my favorite quotes about journal keeping. I knew it was by Isabel Colegate, but I never knew exactly where it appeared in her works. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover it here. (And, by the way - do you keep a journal?)
