Quote of the Day for September 3rd!

Find your quiet center of life and write from that to the world. 


Sarah Orne Jewett
Sarah Orne Jewett (born September 3, 1849) was known for her regional fiction that focused on life in her native Maine. Her stories and vignettes—often about New England’s declining farms and seaports—appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, and other periodicals. Critics consider her best book to be The Country of the Pointed Firs, which beautifully captured the flavor of an isolated seaport town, and she was a lasting influence on Willa Cather, who dedicated O Pioneers! to her.
