“You’ve got forever; and somehow you can’t do much with it. You’ve got forever; and it’s a mile wide and an inch deep and full of alligators.”
Jim Thompson

Celebrating the work of Jim Thompson on his bday.

Jim Thompson was born on September 27, 1906. On August 5, 2014, we released all 25 of his books in trade paperback. Happy belated birthday to the king of hardboiled crime fiction.

On the book tour, people always ask how to get started writing. The trick is to remember two things. The first is to start working. If you have an idea, just do it. Don’t worry if it’s no good. That’s what second drafts are for. The other thing to remember is that you’re going to die. Period. There’s no way around it. Between now and then, what do you want to do with your time? Something you’re passionate about or do you want to play another video game and stay safe?

You want to be a writer? Take the leap and see what happens.

Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
