I probably have the most fun thinking up original vehicles. I usually consider details such as how to get into them and where their engines are.

I used to be something of an obsessive when it came to research. When I first began writing the Thorne novels, I would drive to a set of trafficlights in the early hours of the morning to make sure you could turn left. I thought it was important to get even the most trivial details right.
But Sergio Leone invented totally the way of, you know, the details, the eyes, the hands – fantastic.
At Ajax, I got an education in how to be confident on the ball, my technique, and then, at Atletico, I learned how to defend. It was about the details, the ruthlessness; be clinical in front of your own goal, win every duel, be clever. I learned so much and, defensively, I grew there so much.

I think, when you are writing non-fiction, you feel there’s an obligation to get it absolutely right, so all your factual details have to be, have, you know, to go through a long list of them and tick them. I’m not saying that’s not important in fiction, but I think you have a bit more leeway; you can suit yourself.
Self-reflection is so healthy. Journaling works for me – when I record the details of what I’m going through, whether it’s a relationship issue or negative thoughts, I can look back and see how far I’ve come. It makes me proud to see my progress and how I got through a bad situation.
I never make notes; just a few small details when I’m writing, but nothing much. The plot is never written down. I will tell the story to myself, but I won’t plan it. I’ll speak the narrative in my head for a while.
Nobody will ever notice that. Filmmaking is not about the tiny details. It’s about the big picture.
‘Gandhi’ was a well-made film but surely not my best. It had flaws, which I understand two-and-a-half decades after I directed it. I will never call it a propaganda film for the Indian Congress, but it could have been made better had I concentrated on certain minute details.
The truth is, I don’t sketch much at all. I have a very visual/spatial brain that retains a lot of information about maps, directions, positioning, and details, so I usually prefer working out those issues on the page itself.

Our culture already has a number of well known stories about artificial life and non-human intelligence. In ‘Exegesis,’ I’ve tried to not only tell a new and engaging story but also to comment on those well known stories through the details of my novel.
I’ve always been jealous of rappers, because they can fit so many words into a song and tell a story with lots of details. But when you’re a songwriter, you have to fit the words to the melody and you can’t fit as much in. I’m just a big fan of storytelling.
When the basic status of a theory is clear, and all that needs to be cleared are details, you can collaborate. But if the main structure of a hypothesis isn’t established, and you want to change the paradigm – like it was the case in the 1960s – it’s better to work alone.

At WSX the message was loud and clear consistently, even as a rookiesigning a contract and kind of talking about things and getting into the nitty-gritty details. I felt like I was always given a lot of respect and in fact sometimes I thought they were almost tooting my own horn too loud I thought it was almost silly.
I do want people to have a sense of just the extreme level of meticulousness and care that goes into everything. I wouldn’t expect anybody to catch all the details of what I’m doing. The level of obsession is so extreme.

Jamie S. Miller
For me, being able to engage with the details when necessary, when there’s a challenge, when there’s a particularly important pivot, yes, you have to do that. But in general, a leader needs to trust their commanders, needs to trust the team they’ve assembled, to actually execute in the right way.
We pride ourselves on preparing well and genuinely. It’s quite easy to brush over the small details, your recovery, the little one percenters. There are so many little things that add up to the performance.
I spent a lot of time listening to people. But it’s also true that I liked details and listening to people when I was a bartender and when I was a waitress and probably when I was a babysitter as well. I suspect that’s part of what drew me to psychotherapy rather than the other way around.

I am not a retailer – I have never run a store; I have never understood the full details of how you can make a consumersatisfied. To build a company, to do deals, to motivate people: this is what I am able to do.
We have to allow ourselves the freedom to make mistakes, includingcultural mistakes, in our first drafts. I believe it’s okay to get cultural details wrong in your first draft. It’s okay if stereotypesemerge. It just means that your experience is limited, that you’re human.
I couldn’t sleep for nights on end, as my brain felt like there were thoughts colliding within it; I obsessed over small details, from saving pennies and polishing each one of them to washing my clothing over and over in the washing machine.

I concentrate, more than I think virtually any comic book artist has in the past, on the so-called mundane details of every day life – quotidian life. What happens to a person during a working day, marital relations, and stuff like that.

I have clients from 19 to 80 years old, and the way I work means that they can take the same dress and shorten, lengthen it, remove the sleeve, adjust details – and make it their own. They get a piece that is right for them. It’s a clever way of shopping in this economy.
One side of me is very busy paying attention to the details of life, the humanity of people, catching the street voices, the middle-class, upper-middle-class secret lives of Turks. The other side is interested in history and class and gender, trying to get all of society in a very realistic way.
For those who turn to literary biography for salacious details, ‘Flannery’ will disappoint. It is the biography of someone who had very little chance to live in the conventional sense, to experience events.
Really good writing, from my perspective, runs a lot like a visual on the screen. You need to create that kind of detail and have credibility with the reader, so the reader knows that you were really there, that you really experienced it, that you know the details. That comes out of seeing.
When you admit that you are married, people try to get skeletons out of your closet. They dig into your personal lives and link you with strangers, which could be detrimental. They also want to know details about your marriage, children, and so on. I wanted to keep it private because I only want my work to speak.
I’m very detail-oriented, which is good and bad. Because I will wake up in the middle of the night thinking about something or seeing a mistake, thinking about it, and I immediately send an email – I’m very focused on details.
I don’t inflicthorrors on readers. In my research, I’ve uncovered trulyterrible documentations of cruelty and torture, but I leave that offstage. I always pull back and let the reader imagine the details. We all know to one degree or another the horrors of war.
As you try to tweak your sleep one way or the other, you might be, you might be doing great – you might do better at remembering details of an event, but you might end up being poorer at abstracting the gist or the rules associated with it.

One of the most interesting things that I’m seeing of the Trump picks is such a heavy business and financial focus. I can’t help but feel like this is going to throw a lot of policy weight and details back to Congress, because these are not people who have a lot of experience draftinglegislation.
Marriage is all about knowing the ins and outs and the intimate details, and your wife is supposed to be the person you know best. But my brother and I think alike, know everything about one another, and when we get together, we block everything else out. Nothing exists in our worldexcept for us.
The degree of intelligence that a man or a machine can show depends on many qualities of the ways that knowledge, goals, and problem-solvingtechniques are represented and put together, and not so much on the fine details.
I guess I have an aversion to writing about big events and heroic actions. The everyday has always seemed most important to me in writing, probably because I believe people reveal themselves in how they deal with small details.

It was my first day at work – and beginning my training on the job, I was given the job of writing cheques and entering their details. The branch was surrounded by hordes of people… soon, they had to close the gates to manage the crowds, and they started pushing in.

While the story about the hunt for bin Laden has been exhaustively reported and the key sources and witnesses are in agreement about the main points of the narrative, of course, it’s still possible that we could learn new details about the story that would add to the narrative.
When I meet people, I relay things I see and feel. And in a reading when I interact with a person, I’ll pick up on sensations and feelings and piece them together to make a coherent thought. My goal is to always get specific information and relay details that people will connect to.
I take a lot of notes. Maybe it’s a product of me taking so many notes, but I have a pretty good memory for episodes, and some of the other actors will ask me questions about things, so I have this sense of responsibility that I have to be the one to remember some of the details.
In Portland, I am more involved in the details of trade discussions because I’ve been around that sport longer and can watch tape and can give some input to the drafting process. In football, not at all. It’s so specialized.
