Talkin' 'Bout a Writer Who's Talkin' 'Bout Writing

        I am always fascinated when writers open up their heads and let us in.  Recently Mary Karr spoke to a group of drooling groupies. (I had a puddle at my feet just like everyone else.) Her book Lit is one of my recent favorites.

         It was incredibly interesting to hear her discuss her books and the writing process that works for her.  The experience was so exhilirating, I think I drove over the speed limit, driving down Lindbergh (which is like a highway) as if it was a highway; if a police officer had stopped me, I would have  giddily shrieked, "I just spent the evening with Mary Karr!  What an evening!" as I accepted the ticket.

      Janet Fitch's blog has a marvelous post about Jonathan Franzen.  Check it out.  I think you will find it illuminating...
