‘To record the world as it is. To set down the past before it is all forgotten. To excavate the past because it has been forgotten… Because to write is to take risks, and it is only by taking risks that we know we are alive. To produce order out of chaos… To thumb my nose at Death… To pass the time, even though it would have passed anyway.’

– Margaret Atwood, On Writers and Writing
