Two very different interviews and approaches – both enormously comforting to read –
David Vann at Helen Heath (Thanks to Emma Martin for drawing my attention to this.)
Highlights for me are pretty much everything Vann says, and this from Egan :
I haven’t had trouble with writer’s block. I think it’s because my process involves writing very badly. My first drafts are filled with lurching, clichéd writing, outright flailing around. Writing that doesn’t have a good voice or any voice. But then there will be good moments. It seems writer’s block is often a dislike of writing badly and waiting for writing better to happen.
