“If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered anyway.”
“I go out to my little office, where I’ve got a manuscript, and the last page I was happy with is on top. I read that, and it’s like getting on a taxiway. I’m able to go through and revise it and put myself back into that world.”
