Whether that is your writing, or yourself. That strategy seems to have worked well for Cohen.
At just 31 he is the author of seven books, including the page Witz , which earned him comparisons to Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace. A neat, compact man with perfectly circular glasses and a strong, steady voice, he presents, initially, as precocious, even a bit dour. A few minutes of conversation with him quickly dispel the latter impression.
Asked to explain his impressive work ethic—Georgia Cool, the literary agent who sold Four New Messages she is now a freelance copyeditor and proofreader mentioned to hour work days. I write everything by saying it aloud.
I believe in the ear. We became more eye-and-hand-oriented, creatures crouching alone, reading off the page. The repetitions are, in my mind, linked to the idea that the Internet is conceptually vast, but you end up spending the bulk of your time visiting the same sites again and again or perhaps this is just my own practice.

Though it was good the motel got such good service—he was connected, stably online, for a fee. To be added to his bill. Spending so much money, so much of it not his. He was tired of unfinishing delinquent assignments, tired of rereading homework done in a rush.
Daily, often twice: www. He had to go down to the newsstand or check the mail for unmarked packages, butcher-paper-wrapped. Or by a sentiment even more Trotskyish—every revolution must revolt—implying, of course, that every generation must resolve itself, necessarily, only in failure.
Not every generation has thought the codex will disappear. Then a walk, then a crawl. No more trashy telling like this, no more folktales. How do these immersive features change stories?
