I just stumbled upon this micro-documentary by The New Yorker about Joyce Carol Oates. It offers a tiny glimpse into her home, and her life and work as a writer.
The part at the end about not having a personality really resonated with me because I have often felt that way without being able to understand it, let alone put it into words as beautifully as she did.
But see and listen for yourselves:
Also, there are a few other links I recently stumbled across which I found inspiring and interesting:
- The Atlantic posted an interview with Stephen King a few weeks ago, talking with him about the impact of first sentences in a story.
There is a lot in Miller’s writing routines that I should take to heart more often. I especially like number 1, 3, 5, and 10.
Are there any articles, interviews or documentaries on writing, writers, or anything related that you can recommend?
