Absolutely love Roald Dahl and the below quote from Matilda. I think The Twits is my favourite. What's everyone else's?

WRITERS ASK WRITERS: A Day in the Literary Life of... - 3 years ago
This month in our 'Writers Ask Writers' blog series, we've asked: which other writer, living or dead, we would like to be for a day? I'd also like to welcome our guest blogger, Kirsten Krauth, author of newly published Just A Girl who blogs over at Wild Colonial Girl. When Sara Foster first suggested this topic, I was excited. I thought of all the literary greats who I imagined spending more time 'living' than actually writing. Did I want to be Ernest Hemingway, who wrote standing up in pencil before typing anything, and took a one mile swim without fail every day? Or Henry Miller, who made sure to enjoy dinner with friends or explore his local area on foot in the evening?
I'll show you mine, if you show me yours... - 3 years ago
New home...new office - and I've been taking the transformation of mine relatively seriously. If it's a nice relaxing environment, I will want to go in there every morning and work - right? Decorating the office is like working, while actually avoiding it. It was a lot of fun and I think it's worth it.First, I'll show you what it looked like when I started. It was our spare bedroom, and although the colours were nice, it wasn't somewhere I'd want to work. (There's a desk round that corner by the way, a small one).

This time last week, I found out that How To Be A Good Wife has been longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize and I was utterly thrilled.
