Since blogging regularly theoretically involves writing regularly, I'm mentioning an audiobook that I'm currently listening to for the second time because I liked it so much. It's a collection called "The Best of NPR : Writers on Writing." It includes interviews with May Sarton, Roddy Doyle, Joan Didion, Sharon Olds, Anne Lamott, Walter Mosley, John McPhee and others.
NPR picked the best of their interviews with writers and asked them questions about being a writer or about their works. Some of the authors I have never read and am intrigued to pursue more of their offerings. On the tape, the book "A River Runs Through It" is particularly popular and and I was particularly moved by the interview with May Sarton as well.
I guess I'm a little behind the learning curve in the audiobook world in that I don't have an Ipod or listen to podcasts. My oldish car just has a cassette player and I fiind that there are still many interesting books on tape available from the local library.
If you want to ponder the subject of writing, I highly recommend this collection. Maybe I will even quote some of the writers as a follow-up later.
