Quote of the Day
My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers from what seemed like one safe place to another. Like lily pads, round and green, these places summoned and then held me up while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear.
You know, my first three or four drafts, you can see, are on legal pads in long hand. And then I go to a typewriter, and I know everybody's switching to a computer. And I'm sort of laughed at.
It rolls off my back. Ridicule doesn't mean anything - even from people you're supposed to wear knee pads around, like the scientific community.
I don't have to put on shoulder pads and run out there and let somebody hit on me a little bit.
I write in longhand on yellow legal pads.
Well, for Blow I had to age from 20 to 60, starting out in shape and then later putting on fat pads.
I always think I know the way a novel will go. I write maps on oversized art pads like the kind I carried around in college when I was earnest about drawing. I need to have some idea of the shape of the novel, where its headed, so that I can proceed with confidence. But the truth is my characters start doing and saying things I don't expect.
I actually had a Bobby Orr action figure. You could put the pads on him and skates and all that. I was 7, and he was still playing.
Most of the hits I take come on top of the shoulder pads.
I still wear minis and cardigans, but I think I'll steer away from shoulder pads.
'Lost Boys' is one of my all-time faves. I just thought it would be great to be a vampire. I remember this movie called 'Once Bitten,' which is about an '80s sort of power girl who became a vampire and was really, like, sexy. Hair like she was from 'Dallas,' shoulder pads, big earrings.
