The starving peasant

Keep a space in your mind for the man or woman in prison;
the individual who will read your book with the same sort of relish with which a starving peasant seizes a loaf of bread.
This is the individual who will penetrate to the heart of your writing.
He is your critic, your disciple.
He will sit with you for hour after hour,
and will hear your own soul speaking through your words.
Be aware of this lonely man or woman as you write.
Terry Waite
