Jane Austen: On Writer’s Block
I am not at all in a humour for writing; I must write on till I am.
Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, made her one of the most widely read writers in English literature. Austen wrote six novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Emma, Mansfield Park, and Persuasion.
Jane’s most productive writing years were spent in Chawton Cottage. She wrote near a window on a small walnut table on a writing slope from her father. Her dedication allowed her to produce three of her six novels during the last eight years of her life, and to revise her earlier ones.
