“I remember asking him, ‘How do you do what you do? You wake up, you shower and you shave, and do you sit at your desk and say, “I’m going to write a chapter today? I’m going to do 10 pages? 100 pages?”’

“He looked at me without batting an eye and said, ‘How do you do what you do?’ Enough said.”

    Very cool! There’s so much good stuff on here lately that I can’t keep up.

      On the other hand, I would certainly sign off on a limit for how many posts feature photos of maggots per day, or per annum.

  3. Yes, I see your point and think you’re right. Our cup cannot run over if we cover it with our hand. So bring on the flow and flood of words.

    Furthermore, in repentance of my impertinence, for Lent I promise to read Korrective everyday.
