The more things remain obscure and mysterious, the more they interest me. I even try to find mystery in things that have none.
As a writer, one is always a little blind to what one writes.
Because I find writing painful, I try to get it over with as fast as possible. But I write every day, or I lose the thread.
Encourage aspiring writers to continue writing when things are going against them, when it feels hard. Explain the typical obstacles that occur, and encourage and reassure them to continue, never to give up.
I always have the impression that I write the same book.
