Literary Birthday – 9 January – Anne Rivers Siddons


Happy Birthday, Anne Rivers Siddons, born 9 January 1936

Five Quotes
  1. I think we all get too caught up in doing instead of just being sometimes.
  2. I think every creative impulse that a working writer, or artist of any sort has, comes out of that dark old country where dreams come from.
  3. I don’t know if I would do sequels. I almost feel like when I’m done with them, they’re going to have to find their own way.
  4. Perhaps the most important thing we can ever do in our lives is find a way to keep the wild-both the wild inside and the wild outside us-and tap into it.
  5. It’s unimaginable to me that I wouldn’t write, but it’s very imaginable that I won’t write for a little while.

Anne Rivers Siddons is an American novelist who writes stories set in the southern United States. Two of her best known novels are Peachtree Road, and Heartbreak Hotel, which was made into a film titled Heart of Dixie.
