    I rewrite, but I rewrite as I go along. I try never to leave a sentence until I think it’s as good as I can make it. Then when I’m satisfied with that sentence, I go on to the next one.

    When I’m actually working on a book, I usually show up at about ten. Well, not at about ten, I show up at ten, because I want my muse to know where I’ll be. My muse knows that at ten o’clock I’ll be in this room and ready to write, if she shows up. She doesn’t always come, but if she does, she knows she doesn’t have to go looking in the bars for me. She doesn’t have to go down to the beach to see if I’m there. She knows that at ten o’clock, if she chooses to show up, I’ll be here.

    A good sentence is one that starts out in one place and then by the time it is over, it is taking you somewhere else.
