Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure Chest
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.

  • Reliably insightful, Nina Badzin tackles writer envy in her latest advice column for the HerStories Project.
  • In The New Yorker this week, a marvelous essay on the art and craft of omission in writing. By John McPhee.
  • And on The New Yorker‘s website: Laura Miller’s must-read on “David Foster Wallace and the Perils of ‘Litchat.'”
  • On Jane Friedman’s site, Benjamin Vogt has a resonant post on writing about family history.
  • And one last thing:

    Today brings the somber anniversary of September 11, 2001; may we all be well and have a peaceful weekend. Also: I’ll be celebrating Rosh Hashanah on Monday and therefore won’t post a Monday Markets post. I’ll be back by Wednesday, though.
