“I read criticism of what I write with interest, take what resonates with or is useful to me, and put the rest out of my mind as best I can.”

Man that’s healthy. And like all healthy things, damn hard to stick to.

“Bella has sex with Edward, who is half a ghost. Jacob is a talking cat. Most of the prose is given over to descriptions of Bella making pasta.”

All I can say about this description of what Twilight would have been like if Haruki Murakami had written it is YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

“Play Tantalus, doomed to forever hunger and thirst for feeding his son to the gods! Experience the plight of the Danaids, who must fill a sieve with water!”

How about a level where you are forced to play novelty video games for eternity? I guess that would only be in Geek Mythology.
