“It’s Thrilling to be Writing.”

If you haven’t noticed by now, I adore Joyce Carol Oates. I practically worship her, her writing and her accomplishments. The New Yorker did a profile on JCO at her home last year. This frail-looking woman is a literary mastermind and shares her writing secrets and musics.

“It’s thrilling to be writing. If I’m not writing a short story or a novel, I would then be writing an essay or a book review or I could be doing Twitter. I now do Twitter. The only time I really feel that I can get away from the physical act of writing is when I’m running and walking because then I can think about the writing from another perspective.”
