The 2022 Daily Writing Challenge – January 26

I can’t believe I missed it. A friend politely pointed out that I overlooked an influential author’s birthday yesterday — Virginia Woolf.

Born Adeline Virginia Stephen, on January 25, 1882, in London she is best known for her novels, Mrs. Dalloway (1925) and To the Lighthouse (1927). She was also a significant figure in London literary society and the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals. She is considered one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century.

My favorite piece is an essay entitled, A Room of One’s Own. Woolf based the essay lectures she gave in 1928 at Newnham College and Girton College, the first two colleges for women at Cambridge. In the presentations, Woolf addressed the status of women and, more specifically, women artists. The essay asserts that a woman needs money and a room of her own to write.

Time for me to retire to my room and write.

Did you write yesterday? Are you writing today?
