A. Slow and steady wins the race.
I would like to meet Virginia Woolf (who would, I believe, not be a bit interested in meeting me at all!). But if I could meet her, I would say:
"Thank you. At a key point in my journey as a reader, your work showed me what writing could be. I have never forgotten the excitement of reading your work for the first time."
I would also tell her I am not afraid of her, but she wouldn't understand this since the play, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, was written long after she died!
A. That I don't have more time to write!
A. Kindness. Compassion. A good sense of humor.
