On the Internet you can read about people who write and do cool things. Also sometimes you can listen to them or look at pictures of things they make.
- Did you know that you can get hold of L.M. Montgomery’s journals? Thanks for the tip, livygrrrl!
- And because now I know there are a lot of Montgomery fans in the house, I’ll also point y’all to this title I just discovered: Through Lover’s Lane: L.M. Montgomery’s Photography and Visual Imagination. “For forty years, Montgomery photographed her favourite places and people, using many of these photographs to illustrate the hand-written journals she left as a record of her life. Artistically inclined, and possessing a strong visual memory, Montgomery created scenes and settings in her fiction that are closely linked to the carefully composed shapes in her photographs.” I haven’t read it yet, but I can’t wait.
