Answering a similar question below, I said that I don’t think in terms of inspiration, I think in terms of process and treating it as a job. But having experienced the release of my first novel, I’d like to amend that.

Hollywood writing is always conditional: your script may or may not get produced, and even if it does, you’re at the mercy of so many collaborators and overseers and by the end it may bear no resemblance to what you intended.

But as a novelist, especially with the positive response LAST LOOKS has gotten, I now sit down to work every day believing not only that what I’m writing is going to see the light of day, but that it will reach readers essentially unmediated, and that there are even people who’ll be looking forward to it.

If not actual “inspiration,” that’s at least giving me an unexpected and very pleasant tailwind.(less)

Quotes by Howard Michael Gould  (?)

“Following Hexter’s disquisition on teenage brain development, he had done some reading on his own. One doctor’s article, seconding the thesis about teen brains resembling those of insane adults, advised any parent with a problem teen to hang on and wait for these hellish years to pass, and in the meantime just keep the kid alive.”
Howard Michael Gould, Below the Line

“he recited aloud the canon he’d composed at the time of the original move. “Don’t want,” Waldo said to himself, “don’t acquire, don’t require. “Don’t affect. “Don’t hurt.”
Howard Michael Gould, Last Looks

“I’m a minimalist.” “Minimalist? Fuck’s that? Like those artists, with that white on white and shit?” Waldo squinted at him. Apparently traffickers had gotten more erudite since he’d left the force. “It’s a lifestyle. I’ve divested. I’m only allowed to have one hundred Things.”
Howard Michael Gould, Last Looks
