"When the writing's going well – I'm trying not to sound clichéd – I feel fueled by a hidden source. During those times it doesn't matter if things are going wrong in my life; I have this alternate energy source that's active. When the writing's going poorly, it's as bad or worse than not writing at all. There's a leak or a drain, and energy is pouring out of it. Even when the rest of my life is fine, I feel like something's really bad."
