Hoy, hace 29 años, se puso a la venta el Apple Macintosh y comenzó una revolución.
“When I’m in writing mode for a novel, I get up at 4:00 am and work for five to six hours. In the afternoon, I run for 10km or swim for 1500m (or do both), then I read a bit and listen to some music.
I go to bed at 9:00 pm. I keep to this routine every day without variation. The repetition itself becomes the important thing; it’s a form of mesmerism.
I mesmerize myself to reach a deeper state of mind. But to hold to such repetition for so long — six months to a year — requires a good amount of mental and physical strength.
In that sense, writing a long novel is like survival training. Physical strength is as necessary as artistic sensitivity.”
