Edward Plunkett and the Dragon of Romance

Dunsany’s writing habits were often eccentric. He used quill pens he’d made himself, and almost never rewrote anything. His wife Lady Beatrice claimed that he wrote sitting on a crumpled hat and when the hat was stolen by a visitor, a crisis was precipitated. He would often direct servants and family members to carry out the actions of a story, so he could see them before writing it.
