Reflections of a working writer and reader

 

 

Creating a Text – Winston Churchill

What phases are involved in the creation of a text?

Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him to the public.

Winston Churchill was a writer and a politician. He is no longer writing.

    He was also a Druid, which might surprise some; ordained a Druid at a special ceremony at his ancestral home of
    Blenheim Palace.

    “Winston Churchill was a writer and a politician. He is no longer writing.”

    Is this meant to imply he’s still politicking?
