"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot

Did you know that George Eliot was actually a woman whose real name was Mary Ann Evans? She chose a male pen name to ensure that her works would be taken seriously and to escape the stereotype that women only wrote lighthearted romances. (thanks, wiki.)
If I ever become a serious writer, I want a pen name. Do people still do that? It doesn't matter. 
I'm so inspired by George Eliot.
And we totally have the same feelings about autumn.
