Quotes illustration
“Every character sees the world through a framework of education and experience that they're proud experts about. To write a character, find out what they know best, and THEN you'll know how they'll describe a "hot day." Or a "pretty girl."”

More from Chuck Palahniuk

“My writing process isn't a very organized thing. The actual writing part is a tiny part of my life. I often write in public. I bring my laptop or write freehand in notebooks. Then, I'll read through them while I exercise or walk the dog. The very last thing I do is the sitting alone at the computer part.”
“I write compulsively. I've got so many ideas, and I love to do it so much, I can't not do it. I write the way some people do drugs.”
“History is filled with brilliant people who wanted to fix things and just made them worse.”
