Straub on a “typical” writing day

This entry is part 5 of 8 in the series A typical writing day

These days, I am no longer capable of the ten-hour stretches I used to put in, day after day, night after night. My workday begins around 11 in the morning, and there is a break for lunch around 1:30 or 1:45. At 2:00, while eating lunch, I wander through Llanview, Pennsylvania, an amazing little city where anything can happen: amnesia, resurrections, doppleganager, serial killers, arson, rapes, visitations from the heavenly realm…I’m telling you, Llanview they live life with a capital L. At 3:30 or thereabouts, I return to my desk and work till about 7:00. If I get in five hours of work, it’s a good day, and I know I’ve had it until the next time.–Peter Straub
