Irving on writing like dog-paddling

­ In John Irving’s novel “Avenue of Mysteries, a character named Juan Diego compares writing a novel to treading water and dog-paddling: “It feels like you’re going a long way, because it’s a lot of work, but you’re basically covering old ground—you’re hanging out in familiar territory.”
John Irving
