I go out and take a walk or (if I'm feeling particularly stuck) a viciously exhausting bike ride. I'm big on active meditation: walking or pedaling and just letting my mind wander. It'll fly away from me, flit around in the ether for a while, and then bump up against an idea. Physical exertion and active meditation usually break me out of the doldrums. Doesn't hurt to sleep on it, either. (less)

It's the physiological high you get from calling worlds, characters, and even natural laws into existence with the tap of a finger. The knowledge that you have a story that needs telling up in your head, a blank piece of paper in front of you (on a screen or in a typewriter), and that you decide how it all ends. It's intoxicating. (less)

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
" It's a slog. For not a lot of payoff. It's a 500-page soap opera. "
Abram Jackson
Abram Jackson is 18% done with Anna Karenina: In the last few chapters, I noticed just how believable are the actions of each character. The pace is slow, and so is my reading progress. I'm sure I won't finish in my 21-day check out.

Ed McGivern's Book of Fast and Fancy Revolver Shooting by Ed McGivern

Clear rating
Not at all ashamed to admit that I skimmed Chapters 17-31. Writing in 1936, McGivern is unfortunately long-winded and sesquipedalian, making this book very dry and dull. McGivern takes entire chapters to say what could be summarized in a sentence or ...more
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein
"I found this book on my dad's bookshelf as a child. And then I read every other book by Heinlein at the library. Stranger in a Strange Land is probably why I read science fiction."

They ought to teach this book in creative writing classes. Each chapter is like a short story, a masterclass in characterization and world-building. Yet the overall theme and tone of the novel is preserved throughout, and builds toward a surprisingly ...more

Going For Infinity by Poul Anderson

I picked this book up from the library because I wanted to read one single story in it ("Goat Song"), but I decided to read it all the way through...remembering fondly other Poul Anderson stories that I'd read, such as "Call Me Joe." I'm glad I did. ...more

Robert A. Heinlein
“Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”
Robert A. Heinlein
