In case anyone was curious, despite the lack of guesses (sadness!), here are the answers from yesterday’s author guessing game, in order of their pictures given yesterday:

“I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness – to save oneself trouble.” – Agatha Christie

“There are many reasons why novelists write, but they all have one thing in common – a need to create an alternative world.” – John Fowles

“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.” – Virginia Woolf

“I’m one of those writers who tends to be really good at making outlines and sticking to them. I’m very good at doing that, but I don’t like it. It sort of takes a lot of the fun out.” – Neil Gaiman

“I have no ambition to surprise my reader. Castles with unknown passages are not compatible with my homely muse.” – Anthony Trollope
