“Fiction Is Like a Spider’s Web”

– Virginia Woolf

Spider’s web Virginia Woolf

When I decluttered my old bag the other day, I found my business card. I still remember the quote I put on it by Virginia Woolf:

Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners.

– Virginia Woolf, Room of One’s Own
