"I tried to argue that relentlessly grim 24/7 dulls the impact of grim, dulls the story, and ultimately dulls the reader. A rule: Darkness sets up the light. Light sets up the darkness.

I’ve never once taken time off without feeling guilty about the story I should be working on, the deadline I should be meeting, and so on. . . When a burger flipper goes off duty, he’s truly off duty. His non-working time is entirely his own. That might be the only blessing of such a job, but it’s a real one.
