I’ve always loved the night, when everyone else is asleep and the world is all mine. It’s quiet and dark-the perfect time for creativity.

What I like about the job of being a novelist, and at the same time what I find so exhausting about it, is that it’s the closest thing to being God you’re ever going to get. All the decisions are yours. You decide when the sun comes up. You decide who gets to fall in love and who gets hit by a car. You have to make all the trees and all the leaves and then sew the leaves onto the trees. You make the entire world.

Writing is talking, except you get the chance to edit what you just said
