I’m so stupefied and shocked, I have to say that again:
Seriously, F#&k Me. (Never mind my choice of characters are different every time).
This week I finished writing up two book reviews. I was going to post my first one up, tonight. P.D. James’, Death Comes To Pemberley.
Only 2 nights ago I was proofreading that review. And I was still astounded at James’ age, moreover, that she was still writing at that age. So I looked her up and sure enough, she was 94.
This morning at work I walked past a TV, to see a still image of her.
“P.D. James” it said underneath her photo.
She was alive two nights ago when I wikipedia’d it!
I googled, and the news had broken of her peacefully passing away, only 2 hours earlier.
What the fuck is happening in the world. I’m not looking up people any more.
“With old age, it becomes very difficult. It takes longer for the inspiration to come, but the thing about being a writer is that you need to write.” – P.D. James
