The idea of the writer … has become overrated. To think that you’re this orchestrating wizard and that you have to have this story to tell and you have to have lived and seen crazy shit to be able to put it out there is absurd. To me it’s just as crazy or scary or fucked up to go outside to the grocery store. You know? I feel like going out into the world, you just never know. You never know anything.
