The blogger at sub rosa plans “to spend 2012 in companion with Virginia Woolf” in an effort to become a better writer. She chose Woolf because of her brilliant writing as well as her ability to speak with wisdom about practical things.
The Woolf works included in sub rosa’s 2012 bibliography list are A Room of One’s Own, Three Guineas, To the Lighthouse, Mrs. Dalloway and Moments of Being.
This week, sub rosa posted a piece about Alexandra Harris’s biography of Woolf. The post, “Woolf & the Ramsays,” includes musings about Woolf’s relationship to her parents and to her different selves.
Of course, sub rosa is not the first to recognize Woolf’s expertise as a writing mentor and life advisor. Danell Jones wrote the book on that topic — The Virginia Woolf Writers’ Workshop: Seven Lessons to Inspire Great Writing. Read more about that here: Take a writing workshop from Virginia.
