It is one thing to talk about writing and another thing to sit down and actually write. Here is a wonderful YouTube compilation by Kevin Man, called "Writers on Writing." Martin Amis, Joan Didion, Zadie Smith, Jonathan Franzen, and Fran Lebowitz - all speaking in separate Charlie Rose interviews about writing. The whole thing runs 13:44 minutes, which gives about two-and-half minutes to each author. So if you can't watch it all, take 'em one at a time - and try not to be jealous. (PS: Wouldn't it be nice if everyone spoke as thoughtfully and carefully as these splendid examples of the human race?)
