“It had always seemed to Emily, ever since she could remember, that she was very, very near to a world of wonderful beauty. Between it and herself hung only a thin curtain; she could never draw the curtain aside-- but sometimes, just for a moment, a wind fluttered it and then it was as if she caught a glimpse of the enchanting realm beyond-- only a glimpse-- and heard a note of unearthly music.”          
(L.M. Montgomery, Emily of New Moon)
The Emily series were one of my favourites growing up, and if you're a writer who needs some inspiration I highly recommend these books. They are aimed at younger readers but the stories are about an orphan who just must write, and her imagination is inspiring. Each time I read the books they make me want to write too!


  1. thanks for joining in Zed! I'd never heard of these. Always wonderful when you can get such inspiration from books :)

  2. It really is. Have you read any of the Anne of Green Gables series? It's the same author..
