The Atlantic.com has posted an excellent article that features advice on writing from great authors who have contributed their thoughts to the magazine over the years. Can one learn to be a great writer? Should one drink alcohol or coca-cola when in the throes of authorial despair? Why don’t talented writers become famous, when drooling half-wits rake in scads of money? Is the product of impassioned bouts of writing better than the stuff one truckles out when bored and agonized for lack of inspiration? It’s a fun read, and well worth the visit.
