adult, but threw the eyes of two children. Jem and Scout Finch in Alabama
during the era of the great depression.

Was your judgment a mixture of
positive and negative, or did it learn toward one extreme.
Writing is a process of self-discipline you must learn before you can call
yourself a writer. There are people who write, but I think they’re quite
different from people who must write.
