Here I blog about writing, editing, reading, books, submissions, freelancing, getting published (and rejected), journalism, revisions, life after the MFA, teaching writing, and living the writer's life. Welcome. BUT -- if you are a writer: Write first, read blogs second.

Capote. That's all.

It's Truman Capote's birthday today. So I offer: Capote's biographer on that process. Most of the facts, and a bit more. My favorite Capote quote, on writing: "I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil." Lots more here. And this, vintage video of a Capote interview.

I have to hang that quote in front of me as I write.
