my talents include stress eating and falling in love with people that will never love me back
I heard your camping story that inspired you to write Fight Club. Do all your books have some sort of personal story behind them or is it at times all just pure imagination?
Sorry, I don’t believe in pure imagination. Everything I write is a fictionalized diary entry. Tom S will back me up; even when you think you’re writing crazy pretend shit, you’re actually revealing truths about yourself that even you don’t realize on a conscious level. Years later, as you’re marketing the book, you’ll suddenly recognize what you’re telling strangers, and you’ll pray no one else does.
Henry James said, “A novelist sells to strangers, for three dollars, the secrets he would not tell his closest friend.” ( paraphrased, here )
"Dont make me love you again."
I’m the type that loves clingy. You can’t sleep at 3 am, maybe 4? That’s okay, call me. I don’t mind if you wake me up. You’re never annoying to me, no matter how many times you call or text me. I love it. I love that you care so much.
"The more I threw away, the more I found."
