One of the books that I have read and enjoyed immensely is 'A Room of One's Own' by Virginia Woolf. Though it was published in 1929, it is still relevant today as women often still struggle with taking time for themselves...I know I do. I tend to feel beholden to family, work, community and often feel guilt whenever I take time for myself and it seems that this is self-imposed, possibly generational. The book is more of an extended essay that was published as a feminist piece after a series of lectures she delivered which makes it a pleasure to enjoy in short spurts. The title of the book not only references the space required in which to create but also the need for poetic or creative license, free from judgement and criticism, particularly for a woman.
