Graham Greene: He would structure his entire workday to harness the creative power of his dreams. He would draft new sections of a novel in the morning – tapping away until he had met his self-imposed daily quote of five hundred words – and then read them over before bed, leaving his subconscious to work during the night.

I read this article on the Messy Nessy website about Japanese Truckers. There is a book about them too, called Decotora: 1998-2007 Japanese Art Truck Scene. I’m almost tempted to buy the book. I hope that semis in the United States start decorating their trucks. Perhaps this is already being done in the US, but I don’t see many fancy semis driving through Wisconsin.
