“(Writing) is undoubtedly a lonely career. But I suspect that people who find it lonely are not writers. I think if you are a writer you realize how valuable the time is when you are absolutely alone with your characters in complete peace.” - P.D. James
And, settings for novels, she said, can be … well, literally everywhere.
James (who lived from 1920 to 2014) had this advice for writers: “Just write what you need to write, not what
is currently popular or what you think will sell. Open your mind to new experiences, particularly
to the study of other people. Nothing that happens to a writer – however
happy, however tragic – is ever wasted.”
