I Done Got Blurbed

Joe "the Metal Cowboy" Kurmaskie has an article in the Sunday edition of The Oregonian in which he interviews distinguished authors about their writing habits. You know, people like Christopher Moore, Jeann Duprau, Steve Almond, and Cheryl Strayed.

Oh wait, I hadn't seen my pull-out quote yet... oh my, that's a good one. Expressive yet pithy, and I'm clearly onto something important. Queasiness averted!

As to the article itself, it explores the role of discipline vs. inspiration (or muscle vs. muse) in our writing lives.

Below is an image of as much of the article that I could cram into my undersized scanner. (Oops, there's that picture again. I guess it can't be helped.)
