I’m a very ruthless critic of my own work…Bernardine Evaristo QUOTES FOR WRITERS

I have to be inside the work and also looking at it from the outside as much as you can when you’re creating it yourself. So I’m a very ruthless critic of my own work as I’m developing it. I re write pretty much every paragraph as I’m writing the book. You know, my background was as a poet. And I still pay a poet’s attention to language, as a novelist.
