Okay, I eat a lot of baby goats. Okay, I eat a lot of baby goats fed exclusively on other baby goats. And I feed them on an altar made of baby goat-bones. Where they are summarily slaughtered and roasted. There's more, having to do with baby goats. It's a family recipe.

Also, my skull is naturally shapely. Like, Picard-level curves. That doesn't hurt either.(less)

Although lounging on my friend's couch while I was waiting for him to wake up and take me to brunch was pretty lovely, too. I have a three-year-old at home, so anywhere that isn't there is amazing, but I'm also lousy at reading when surrounded by my notes and research -- I keep going off the rails and back into my own writing.

For writing, there's no place like my office. It's a small, windowless room, and I've been working in here for so long now that my brain kicks right into gear as soon as I shut the door. I take long walks outside between sessions to keep my brain moving.

Before there was an office, I preferred to write at the library.(less)

“My family taught me, too, to begin every burial with these words, which my mother said were true of everyone who lives long enough to walk and talk—from the most honorable person lying here, down to the very worst.” He closed his eyes and touched his chest. “ ‘How they tried,’ ” said Rafe. “ ‘How long, how hard they tried.”
