Abstract:

After the pen and paper have been gathered, what comes next? In this program, Fay Weldon, Janet Evanovich, Richard Ford, Amit Chaudhuri, Isobelle Carmody, and other highly regarded authors share their approaches to launching a story. From how to jumpstart the imagination to deciding whether to write for a specific market, these writers candidly speak their minds-even about the dreaded writer's block. "If you stop [writing] and start artistically contemplating how desolate you are at stopping, of course you're going to come to a writer's block," says Carmody.
