“Treating exercise as a means to be more, as opposed to viewing it as a never-ending struggle to be less, is absolutely a game changer.”

Imagined Conversations from Bygone Times

"Really? I get to be King Glamour Pants? You really think this means girls will notice me?"
“Oh yeah, chicks dig King Glamour Pants [hehe]. Seriously.” [hahaha]
"Shut up Janice you’re going to ruin it."
"I’m trying" [hahaha]

I want to wear every outfit in this picture.

“With a partial manuscript, I think it’s especially important for an editor to say what he’s enjoying. For a novelist to be told, midstream, what he’s doing right can actually influence the unwritten parts of a novel in a positive way—praise helps a writer know what’s good about what he’s written, what’s interesting and exciting, and what to work for in writing the conclusion. Knowing the strong points focuses one’s attention on what’s strong, and makes it easier to move from strength to strength. Whereas criticism at the wrong time, even if it’s legitimate criticism, can be seriously damaging and make the writer lose faith in what he’s doing. It’s the timing that’s all-important.”
  • INTERVIEWER: Could you say something of your work habits? Do you write to a preplanned chart? Do you jump from one section to another, or do you move from the beginning through to the end?
  • NABOKOV: The pattern of the thing precedes the thing. I fill in the gaps of the crossword at any spot I happen to choose. These bits I write on index cards until the novel is done. My schedule is flexible, but I am rather particular about my instruments: lined Bristol cards and well sharpened, not too hard, pencils capped with erasers.
