"I said long ago, you get you a signature and sign everything you do and keep a copy of it. Then you'll know what you done and you can hold up the crime to the punishment and see do they match and in the end you'll have something to prove you ain't been treated right.

I call myself The Misfit," he said, "because I can't make what all I done wrong fit what all I gone through in punishment.

...Does it seem right to you, lady, that one is punished a heap and another ain't punished at all?"

- Flannery O'Connor,
'A Good Man is Hard to Find'

melancholily24 said, Hey Chuck! Love your work. What advice would you give for young writers?


Okay, long answer here.  A writer friend, Doug Coupland, recently told me about medical studies that suggest the final developmental changes in the human brain occur around the age of 31.  When asked, most people — for the rest of their lives, regardless of their actual age — will say they feel 31 years old.  I’d written for several years, but at 31 I wrote ‘Fight Club’ and that age seemed to allow me the peace to sit and concentrate.  A peace I didn’t have in my 20’s.  My advice is to live a rich, interesting life, practice writing if you want, but don’t beat yourself to produce your best work until after the age of 31.  Okay?  Okay.
