Meg Rosoff on Procrastination and Inspiration

Quote of the day from Meg Rosoff:

I procrastinated about writing a book for about 35 years, always sure I’d never write one good enough. When I finally tried to write a novel, I was inspired by some really bad books I’d read, thinking, ‘at least I can do better than that’.

~From a piece on how children's writers got their start in the Times Online.

Can't wait to read the new book.
