As we grow older I always think, why didn't I do more when I was young, why didn't I risk more?
Sundays tend to be a day where just I do nothing but visit people. It's kind of like trick-or-treating.
The act of writing is a way of tricking yourself into revealing something that you would never consciously put into the world. Sometimes I'm shocked by the deeply personal things I've put into books without realizing it.
Do you remember when you were 10 or 11 years old and you really thought your folks were the best? They were completely omniscient and you took their word for everything. And then you got older and you went through this hideous age when suddenly they were the devil, they were bullies, and they didn't know anything.
