Sometimes I read Neil Gaiman and think ‘I want to write as well as you do, and maybe some day I will - if I work hard’, but then I read something like The Problem of Susan and I just cry and cry and cry, not only because it’s so incredibly beautiful, but because he’s clearly some form of noncorporeal, transcendent Asgardian and, as a mere mortal, I can never hope to equal him.
At least, that’s what I tell myself so I can get to sleep in a puddle of my own miserable mucus.
