If you don’t like my book, write your own. If you don’t think you can write a novel, that ought to tell you something. If you think you can, do. No excuses. If you still don’t like my novel, find a book you do like. Life is too short to be miserable. If you do like my novels, I commend your good taste.

The key is you have to keep doing the right thing. Do the right thing and stay around long enough, and you’ll keep getting parts. And if you don’t, you write your own parts, which I’m lucky to do. It’s like anything else: you get hot, you get cold, then you get hot again. You just keep working.

I think acting is overrated. I’m not sure I enjoyed it. You never get to write your own roles. It’s wonderful for some people, but I found it nerve-wracking. I was too busy worrying that no one would give me their words to speak.
Nina Conti
Maybe being oneself is an acquired taste. For a writer it’s a big deal to bow–or kneel or get knocked down–to the fact that you are going to write your own books and not somebody else’s. Not even those books of the somebody else you thought it was your express business to spruce yourself up to be.
