Author Gay Talese on Writer’s Block
“Probably I have writer’s block as a natural condition.” LOL! A man after my own heart!
In case you’re not familiar with him, Gay Talese was an essayist for The New York Times in the early 1960s and one of several writers who defined “literary journalism”. His piece, “Frank Sinatra Has a Cold”, which ran in Esquire in 1966, is one of the most famous magazine articles in history, and one of the greatest celebrity profile pieces ever written. In their 70th anniversary issue, Esquire editors honored it as the "Best Story Esquire Ever Published."
What do you do to get past writer’s block?
