“I write in order to lose time”

Playwright, author of the environmental novel The Tourist Trail and co-founder of Ashland Creek Press.

From an interview with novelist Javier Marías on why he still writes by typewriter:

I just like writing on paper, taking out the sheet, correcting it by hand, crossing things out, making arrows, typing it over again, and doing so as many times as I have to. I’m not in a hurry, I don’t have to “gain time” when I’m writing. To the contrary: in part, I write in order to lose time.
