If I ever get stumped and I know I’m gonna get stumped, I get up in the morning and I read something I really love.

I read two pages of Raymond Carver, two pages of Ann Patchett, and it just gets in my head and says OK, it’s worth doing, somebody else did it so well, and then I sit down and it’s like the doors open.
