Interesting words - Leonard Woolf

"I have never known anyone work with more intense, more indefatigable concentration than Virginia. This was particularly the case when she was writing a novel. The novel became part of her and she herself was absorbed into the novel. She wrote only in the morning from 10 to 1 and usually she typed out in the afternoon what she had written by hand in the morning, but all day long, when she was walking through London streets or on the Sussex downs or over the watermeadows or along the river Ouse, the book would moving subconsciously in her mind or she herself would be moving in a dreamlike way through the book."
Leonard Woolf
