"Once you mentally add a dollop of sour cream and a tablespoon of schmaltz to 19th Century British literature, you will find it tastes as good as anything in the Western canon."
“… it was written I should be loyal to the nightmare of my choice.”
― Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
Conrad was born on December 3 1857!

It’s mostly individual, but when you have to work together, it must be perfect. My desktop picture is of the Red Sox during the World Series. They aren’t winning; they’re just grinding out another play. This, for me, is very helpful to have in my mind while writing."
