When you write, you want fame, fortune and personal satisfaction. You want to write what you want to write and feel its good, and you want this to go on for hundreds of years. Youre not likely ever to get all these things, and youre not likely to give up writing and commit suicide if you dont, but that is and should be your goal. Anything else is kind of piddling.

There are different types of readers. People draw lines at which three things intersect: the character, the author, and the reader.

Writing a novel, in an unplanned and unpredictable way, makes you engaged; it takes you into yourself, and it becomes something between you and the character for a moment, and then you move back into the structure of the book. I love those moments, because they are completely unbidden.

Readers will always insist on adventures, and though you can have grief without adventures, you cannot have adventures without grief.

When writing you cant wait for inspiration to hit, you need to write yourself out of a block.

Writing is therapeutic. It helps you cope with issues that seem gargantuan at the time. The process of expressing yourself about a problem, editing your thoughts, and writing some more can help you control issues that you face.

I havent had trouble with writers block. I think its because my process involves writing very badly. My first drafts are filled with lurching, clichd writing, outright flailing around. Writing that doesnt have a good voice or any voice. But then there will be good moments. It seems writers block is often a dislike of writing badly and waiting for writing better to happen.

When Im writing fiction I dont like writing at a desk. Ill often write at this [gingham easy] chair that I got at Ikea. Its awful, there are pen marks all over it. If Im writing original stuff and not editing I often use a lap desk and I write on legal pads. Anything that involves typing or businessy stuff, Ill do at the desk. The actual creation is always by hand, away from the computer.

[Ones writing] must have a hectic, anguished vehemence, so that it rushes past like a gust of air, and it must have a latent, roistering tenderness so that it creeps and steals ones mind; it must be able to ring out like a sea-shanty in a tremendous hour, in the time of the tempest, and it must be able to sigh like one who, in tearful mood, sobs in his inmost heart.

Read a lot, live your life, and listen and watch, so that your mind fills up with millions of images.

Most people take this for granted, but its really important to be a serious reader, and when you read, look at how writers achieve what they do. Its also important to get a routine going as early as you can C dont think of writing as the thing youd do after all of the important things in life. You cant write in fifteen minute slots when you feel like it.

Anyone who goes into writing has to find out somewhere along the line, hes either naïve or insane.

Writing a story is kind of like surfing, as opposed to the novel, where you use a GPS to get somewhere. With surfing, you kind of jump.

Thats the point of reading fiction so someone else can say in a way you never would have something you recognise immediately.

Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.
