If I'm in the middle of a story and having trouble deciding where to go next, I'll spend some time going back and working on rewrites for what I have so far. That usually gets me back into the story and sparks new ideas.

If I am between projects and looking for the next thing, it's a matter of letting all the ideas float through my mind, play around with them and see what sticks. For every one idea that actually gets completed there are hundreds that never went anywhere. (less)

He doesn’t ask the question with the tone of, “What intrigues you about the gas station/convenience store industry?” It’s more, “How bad did you screw up your life that you ended up here?”


Why do you want to work here?”


Blink. Blink.


I have nothing.


The question stumbles out of his mouth, barfs on me and passes out at my feet. I want to kick it under the desk and mov...

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Love is like the human appendix. You take it for granted while it's there, but when it's suddenly gone you're forced to endure horrible pain that can only be alleviated through drugs.”
Reverend Jen, Live Nude Elf

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
Anaïs Nin

“It's nonverbal: I need love. I need the thing that happens when your brain shuts off and your heart turns on. And I know it's around me somewhere, but I just can't feel it.”
Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation

“I heard that the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.”

“Without compassion, we will never know anyone or anything, not even our own story. Too much judgment, too many ideas and attitudes will stand in the way of the fundamental principle that we are similar to, connected with, and part of everything else.”
