Something wicked this way comes.

Goodreads recommends me a book about eels. I don’t know what surprised me more, this calculation of my taste in books, or the fact that someone wrote a book about eels.

More and more I think there’s an element of fiction writing that’s performative. If you want your stories to carry a particular charge of feeling, you have to experience that feeling while you’re working. I don’t know that you can fake it, or at least I don’t know that I’ve ever been able to fake it, because the choices you make when you’re writing—the rhythms you adopt, the phrases you construct, the effect one word has when it’s nestled alongside another—are so highly nuanced, and have so much to do with the ultimate emotional effect of a story, so that if you aren’t feeling along with your sentences, your instincts will gradually lead you astray.

The Rumpus Interview With Kevin Brockmeier

This is, no surprise, really really great.

This is really interesting! Do you guys feel this way when you write? I think I only do sometimes, and I would categorize those times as when I feel “inspired” or when “the muses speak to me”, etc. But it’s definitely not how I feel when I’m slogging away at something.

This is really weird because I’m pretty sure I wrote the comment right above this one, but it’s not sourced anywhere. Also weird that I can find something on Tumblr and be sure that I wrote it.

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.
