A sorority house massacre, a crazed killer on the loose near a remote cabin, and a maniac who attacks the guests of a seedy motel one by one.
Those two pieces of advice have shaped my career as a writer and a producer of books for other people.
So here’s my recommendation: pick up at least one of these books before you head to school in August.
You’ll learn all about your favorite Hogwarts classes, just like a real wizard.
“Always say less than necessary.”
I read when I want to kill time. I read when I get stressed. I read when I’m angry. I read as my mom shouts at me for skipping meals and choosing books. I read in an attempt to slip away from the monotony of existence.
I have an idea that our political meltdown will be good for art. It imposes a new set of constraints, and for me constraints are liberating.
That’s all we can do. Keep doing the work. Find the thing that makes us feel most alive, and do that.
