LMM on the Birth of Anne of Green Gables

" All my life it has been my aim to write a book- a "real live" book. Of late years I have been thinking of it seriously but somehow it seemed such a big task I hadn't the courage to begin it... Two years ago in the spring of 1905 I was looking over this notebook in search of some suitable idea for a short serial I wanted write for a certain Sunday School paper and I found a faded entry, written ten years before:-"Elderly couple apply to orphan asylum for a boy. By mistake a girl is sent them." I thought this would do.... Somehow or other she seemed very real to me and took possession of me to an unusal extent. Her personality appealed to me and I thought it rather a shame to waste her on an ephemeral little serial. Then the thought came, "Write a book about her."... The result of this was Anne of Green Gables...

"The book may not sell well. I wrote it for love, not money-but very often such books are the most successful- just as everything in life that is born of true love is better than mercenary ends."
~~ LM Montgomery, The Selected Journals of L M Montgomery Vol1 August 16, 1907
