On writing

Graffiti, Chicago, Illinois
"But writing a novel is an inherently strange exercise. It’s surreal to work for years and years on a project very few people have seen. Sometimes I feel like I’m in the grips of an incredibly intricate and time-consuming delusion. So it’s comforting to know that some of the novelists who inspire me also, of necessity, take their time." -- "Some Company for Slow Writers," Maud Newton
