My interview at the National Endowment for the Arts is up. I answer the "how do you do it" question, talk about acute, specific, and contained writer's block, stealing from poetry and short stories for the sake of novels, learning from writing across genres and audiences -- with a bit about pen names. a Wes Anderson shout-out and an admission of Alec Baldwin narrating in my brain. (And I'm deeply thankful to the brilliant interviewer for using the vague descriptor 40-something.)
