Sometimes, I wish I'd chosen a better writer to memorize

Because there are allusions to Galsworthy all over the place in the NaNoWriMo project, and he's really not the sort of writer one wants to be nodding to, what with being massively out of fashion and all. And having moments of sticky sentimentality that would make even the schmoopiest of you wince. But it's too late. I chose my doom at age 12. That's what the unconscious has to work with.

It's like having the RSV stuck in your head instead of the KJV. You're like, man, it's not what the hip kids are name-checking. But that's what you read growing up, so what comes to mind is "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil."

I suppose it could be worse.
