      My obsession with Haruki Murakami continues...

      It’s true. There aren’t any new words. Our job is to give new meanings and special overtones to absolutely ordinary words.

      Writing is similar to trying to seduce a woman. A lot has to do with practice, but mostly it’s innate. Anyway, good luck.

      Everything you can get your hands on—great novels, not-so-great novels, crappy novels, it doesn’t matter (at all!) as long as you keep reading. Absorb as many stories as you physically can. Introduce yourself to lots of great writing. To lots of mediocre writing too. This is your most important task.
