A child's mind is its living room; it's is going to be residing there for the rest of its earthly existence.
The gods have chosen to entertain me with chronic eyestrain headaches. Very poisonous episodes. So I don't do a lot of reading anymore except on tape.
I have always been a romantic, one of those people who believes that a woman in pink circus tights contains all the secrets of the universe.
I show up in my writing room at approximately 10 A.M. every morning without fail. Sometimes my muse sees fit to join me there and sometimes she doesn't, but she always knows where I'll be. She doesn't need to go hunting in the taverns or on the beach or drag the boulevard looking for me.
