I start early in the morning. I'm usually out in the woods with the dog as soon as it gets light; then I drink a whole lot of tea and start as early as I can, and I go as long as I can.

R
I am trying - in a good cause - to crowd people out of their own minds and occupy their space. I want them to stop being themselves for the moment, I want them to stop thinking, and I want to occupy their heads.
A
One is improvising when one writes, and you pick up in the same way a musician starts to improvise and detect the inner structure of what he's playing - that's the way it works in the writing of a novel. You pick up the beat.
N

K
