After all a book can be represented as a conversation with one’s demon.
Novels are fictions and therefore they tell lies, but through those lies every novelist attempts to tell the truth about the world.
Lorde - Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Protect the time and space in which you write. Keep everybody away from it, even the people who are most important to you.
Zadie Smith (via politicsprose)
I go hours before I’m able to write a word. I make tea. I mean, I used to make tea all day long.
