Here is the simple truth about people: Love the ones you want to keep.

Okay, long answer here. A writer friend, Doug Coupland, recently told me about medical studies that suggest the final developmental changes in the human brain occur around the age of 31. When asked, most people — for the rest of their lives, regardless of their actual age — will say they feel 31 years old. I’d written for several years, but at 31 I wrote ‘Fight Club’ and that age seemed to allow me the peace to sit and concentrate. A peace I didn’t have in my 20’s. My advice is to live a rich, interesting life, practice writing if you want, but don’t beat yourself to produce your best work until after the age of 31. Okay? Okay.
