"Håller min idé?"

“For me it takes a few years to write a book. I feel so anxious about ‘was this a good idea?’ It just means that someone has to calm me down, like an editor; he should convince me that it’s worth working on so that I’ll go on. It’s like temperamental. It’s a sort of a joke. ... Familiarity is important because I realize that I go through this with every book. But the minute I finish that book, I forget and then I go through it again. Someone has to tell me, ‘This is the seventh time you’re going through this,’ and somebody has to be around me enough to know.”
