I wasn't sure what I should have cut, add, change or leave.

I did around twelve to fourteen edits so the way I dealt with the editing block was work through it.(less)
S.C. Sterling It is nice holding a final paperback copy of my book. It is a great feeling seeing a final product of 14 months of writing and editing.

“My main concern was my teeth because they were in constant pain. Meth depletes the body of calcium, the vitamin essential to maintaining healthy teeth. It also includes acidic ingredients that can damage teeth. The ingredients include but are not limited to battery acid: Drano, over-the-counter cold medications like Sudafed, antifreeze, engine starter fluid, and brake fluid. Basically, pop the hood of your car and you can find the ingredients you need to cook meth. I’m no dentist, but I came to the conclusion that was the root of my tooth pain.”

“I started inventing things, and then I couldn't stop, like beavers, which I know about. People think they cut down trees so they can build dams, but in reality it's because their teeth never stop growing, and if they didn't constantly file them down by cutting through all of those trees, their teeth would start to grow into their own faces, which would kill them. That's how my brain was.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
