Excerpt from Overlooked
When my old friend and trusted adviser, Doctor Kennaway, told me that I must go to Hareville and stay there a month or, still better, two months, I asked him what I could possibly do there. The only possible pastime at a watering-place is to watch. A blind man is debarred from that pastime.
He said to me: "Why don't you write a novel?"
I said that I had never written anything in my life. He then said that a famous editor, of the Figaro, I think, had once said that every man had one newspaper article in him. Novel could be substituted for newspaper article.
