[1988 interview] The overall feeling I have is that it would have been a mistake for me to do anything else with my life. People are made for whatever it is they do. Each man does that which he must. Oftentimes, you have to write because you absolutely have to have the money, so you do make compromises. But when you look back you forget those compromises, look at the overall picture and think, "It hasn't been all bad. Some of it was pretty good times". Then you have people come up to you and say, "I really loved that novel. It changed my life". I get so much of that and it's a tremendous feeling of accomplishment. What it comes down to is that it has been great fun and if I should die in the next minute I don't think I would regret anything I've done. Show less «
