I liked this little discourse on her diary and how it's where Woolf "writes out her fidgets." ✍️

I had my interview with K.M[ansfield] on Friday. A steady discomposing formality and coldness at first. No pleasure or excitement of seeing me. It struck me that she is of the cat kind: alien, composed, always solitary & observant. And then we talked about solitude, & I found her expressing my feelings, as I never heard them expressed.
Virginia Woolf's diary, 31 May 1920.

merelybookish @sarahbarnes @kspenmoll @LeahBergen @kathedron @Theaelizabet They had an interesting friendship! Awkward and some envy (or Woolf had some) but they also understood each other as artists. 3w

#TBT to when my entire life revolved around my grad paper on Virginia Woolf. Sometimes, I miss this. Then I remember the deadline panic... 😅

Angelala007 I love the idea of immersing yourself in the life and work of a brilliant writer like Woolf. 3y
FernsAndFairyTales Oh my gosh I identify so much with this. Except my thesis was on modern fairy tales so my stack was full of fairy tale collections and critical theory on them. 3y
kdwinchester @Angelala007 Pretty sure you go crazy or you fall in love. But I wonder, aren't they practically the same thing? 🤔 3y

kdwinchester @fernsandfairytales Your topic sounds AMAZING. 3y
FernsAndFairyTales @kdwinchester It was! So does yours though! And like yours, the deadlines were a real buzzkill. 3y
Joanne1 Argh, I've got a big deadline looming. I keep thinking when it's done I'll be able to read so much more. 3y
