Author Interviews ON Writing

Sometimes we need to *hear* about other writers and their work styles rather than *read* about them. Auditory processing is different, and important! 

I’ve picked five long and short interviews with authors that have resonated with me. My poetry professor played #4 for us my senior year of college and it is something I think about often, 10 years later.

  1. Joyce Carol Oates – The Tim Ferris Show

  2. George Saunders – Armchair Experts with Dax Shepard

  3. Roger Rosenblatt – Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda

  4. Ira Glass on Taste, Storytelling, and The Gap

  5. Jhumpa Lahiri on Loneliness and Writing

My favorite takeaway is that it’s ok to be bad at writing, you won’t be bad forever. And that it takes a lot of little action to get where you want to be. 

I’d love to know what resonates with you. Happy writing!
