So I was reading through Master of Reality again and Roger Painter's favorite pizza toppings really hit me hard – sausage, bell peppers, and anchovies. I remember you mentioning that pepperoni no longer makes its way onto your pizzas, so was this an old favorite of yours? I guess what I mean to ask is: where did you draw your creative inspiration for this character's pizza preference?
A lot of what I do is about the sound of the words and that’s where I’d guess this comes from - how it sounds when you say “sausage, bell peppers and anchovies.” When I’m writing I read everything out loud to make sure it sounds good that way because for me out loud is still the test of writing. I am pretty archaic in this belief I know but it’s true for me.
