Robin Hobb shared a letter over on DelRey’s site today – here’s to the Forbidden Thought!
I look at my screen, I re-read the last twenty lines or so, and suddenly the Forbidden Thought comes to my mind.
“Isn’t this silly? Isn’t what you have spent the last 40 years of your life doing the silliest thing you can imagine? Saying to other adults, ‘Pretend this with me.’ And then spending a year writing the pretend.”
Here’s to pretending for a bit more – both as readers and writers.
