James Ellroy on Writing

By way of MeeVee at
"I’ll watch boxing on television; I’m a big boxing fan. But I don’t have a television set; I don’t have a DVD player or CD player; I don’t have a cell phone; I don’t have a computer. I don’t read the newspapers or go to films; I ignore the culture. I’m not being disingenuous — I live in a vacuum. And it enhances the concentration I need to write my books. [I] lie in the dark and talk with women who aren’t in the room with me, night after night... It can be frightening, and it can be very moving."
