Tell it like it is- Virginia Woolf

Virgnia Woolf She’s perhaps the controversy woman author of the 19th century paving the way for women authors as no one has done before. Her writings were very startling for its day and time. Unlike Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf didn’t dictate a sweet ‘ladylike‘ way to write. She called it what it was. She wrote how women actually feels not how society is tells them they should feel and what they should think. It’s been 136 years since her birth but female writers still face much of the same uphill battles of her day. Receiving pay for her work was her biggest obstacles.  The same applies today. Most of the top authors are still male. It doesn’t mean women can’t write but it means women still aren’t taken seriously.

Woolf wrote that just as male writers, female writers needed money to write to their fullest potential despite popular belief they don’t survive on air.

During her lifetime the literary critics were brutal and in some cases even threatening (not the critics but others who felt a woman couldn’t write such thing) but she continued to write if they didn’t like it then that was just too bad.

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
