When you’re writing, you’re trying to find out something which you don’t know. The whole language of writing for me is finding out what you don’t want to know, what you don’t want to find out. But something forces you to anyway.
2. How to Be Good, by Nick Hornby. This book helped me stay in a relationship with my now husband, because it was a voice speaking honestly about the incredible difficulties of sticking with someone and loving them. Sometimes you just need to hear that you’re not the only one who thinks that way sometimes, and know that it’s also okay to laugh about it.
