A New Interview with Kyle Minor


Over at The Believer Logger, Matt Bell conducts a wonderful interview with Kyle Minor. There is a wonderful bit in here about work ethic:

“What I hope, eventually, is that I can get to a situation where I’m spending most of my work time on the projects I care most about—the stories, the novels, the screen work, the essays—and carve out more time for reading and for doing things that aren’t work. I feel troubled by the knowledge that my example has caused some other writers to adopt what turn out to be fairly unhealthy habits of overwork. It is hard on the body, and I don’t know that it’s best for the long term in other ways.”
