“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 S. Churchill

About nikkimmascali

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.
