The Seven Worst Sentences In Chuck Palahniuk’s New Novel
It’s called Damned, and it’s about a teenage girl who dies of a marijuana overdose (??) and winds up in Hell. If this sounds like a book you’d want to read, please first consider this evidence:
Page 33: “I watch the surf crest and break in rolling brown waves  on Shit Lake.”
Page 190: “Even through the dirty lenses, fogged with dead flakes  of scalp, I can see Adolf Hitler crumpled beside me.”
Page 206: “Looking at me, with Caligula’s shriveled balls worn on  my belt, next to that Hitler’s nasty mustache hanging like a tiny  scalp, my assorted bloodstained daggers and bludgeons, then wrinkling  her button nose, Babette says, ‘You never could accessorize for shit.’”
Page 43: “The group of us skirted around the margin of the flaky,  greasy Dandruff Desert, where scorching winds as hot as a billion hair  dryers blow the scabs of dead skin into drifts as tall as the  Matterhorn.”
Page 175: “The prickly hillocks of discarded finger and toenail  parings continue to grow and slough in scratchy avalanches.”
Page 75: “Still climbing, I skirt my way around the wrinkled  folds of the labia majora, hauling myself, like Jonathan Swift’s worst  nightmare, through the pungent thickets of curling, dense pubic hair.”
Page 176: “The noxious Great Ocean of Wasted Sperm continues to  spread, engulfing the hellish landscape around it.”

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.
