Sloane Crosley Recommends...


“I like to clear my head as much as possible, usually via actual cleaning. My favorite ideas have originated while folding clothes and scooping up litter. Boring? Yes. But I may be the one writer in the world who is uninspired by music or museum trips. Rather, I find them immensely inspiring for life…but not for their potential impact on my writing. If I think I’m going to a show specifically to get inspired, I get anxious, thinking I should be writing instead. Yet when I scrub the floors, I never once think my time could be put to better use.”
Sloane Crosley, author of How Did You Get This Number (Riverhead Books, 2010)
