An Author Interview on Creative Inspiration and the Writing Craft

My infamous whiteboard wall is mentioned yet again in this interview…

I’m honored to have been interviewed by memoir author Kathleen Pooler on her excellent website/blog, Memoir Writer’s Journey. I guess I got a bit carried away in my answers to her questions, because she’s having to break up the interview into two parts. The first–a discussion of creative insights and inspirations, largely–is now live. The second half–more craft-focused, although with some discussion of living an art-committed life–will be published Thursday.

ADDENDUM ON JAN. 15TH, 2015: The second half of the interview is now live!

I’m an admirer of Pooler and her writing, and gave her memoir Ever Faithful to his Lead a positive review on Goodreads. It means a lot to me that she liked Committed: A Memoir of the Artist’s Road and sought to interview me.

I plan soon to post Part Two of my three-part series on making use of extended metaphors in your creative writing; stay tuned!
