THE NOVEL AS THE EDUCATOR OF THE IMAGINATION.
Writing and publishing are never easy. An author is a slave to beaten path to the doors of rejection after rejection. And if a book is chosen to be published, the author becomes the slave of the publisher's mandates: edit this, change that, sell here, interview there, write another book, meet insane deadlines. But we do it becuase we love our jobs, and work is hard no matter the field. But to write as a woman even as late as the early twentieth century had additional perils.
