Little disappointed in today’s assignment from The Creative Writer’s Notebook. A single line from one of Woolf’s novels, with no context. But there it is.
“The fertility of the earth never ceases to amaze me. It doesn’t take much work to grow life from it — till the soil to give it some air, plant a seed, throw on some water for days when there’s no rain. Week later, there’s green sprouting from the ground. The earth makes it easy for us to create life; it’s waiting for us to make the effort. The earth wants to be worked.”
