Die zehnte Muse

The waste-basket has evolved for a reason. Think of it as the altar of the Muse Oblivion, to whom you sacrifice your botched first drafts, the tokens of your human imperfection. She is the tenth Muse, the one without whom none of the others can function. The gift she offers you is the freedom of the second chance. Or as many chances as you'll take.

Margaret Atwood, Curious Pursuits

 

Zweitkorrektur von Margaret Atwoods Curious Pursuits -  und da geht es Übersetzerinnen nicht anders als Autorinnen: Schreiben, Überarbeiten, Verwerfen und von vorn anfangen.
