If you think of the story you tell that's your favourite personal story, or funny story, it doesn't have flashy sentences. It doesn't have too much detail. It just tells the story. That isn't, for whatever reason, the way most people write books. But it seemed to me that there was no reason that it couldn't be the way at least one person writes books. I said: I'm going to stop writing the parts that people skim.

It seems to make so much sense, doesn't it? I really appreciate books written this way.
