Kate Atkinson on recycling your writing – quotes for writers (and anyone who likes quotes)
I usually start writing a novel that I then abandon. When I say abandon, I don’t think any writer ever abandons anything that they regard as even a half-good sentence. So you recycle. I mean, I can hang on to a sentence for several years and then put it into a book that’s completely different from the one it started in.
