  • Habit is not mere subjugation, it is a tender tie: when one remembers habit it seems to have been happiness.

  • Sooner or later, the great men turn out to be all alike. They never stop working. They never lose a minute. It is very depressing.V.S. Pritchett

I don't know why it's so much fun to read about how others "do things", but I'm fascinated with the way other's approach their work - Thanks for a great site.

This is a great blog with excellent posts and links, and this piece on Michael Lewis's writing methods is particularly interesting because his skill in spinning a great yarn around complicated facts and demystifying them is extraordinary.

Thanks so much.

Thanks for the interview...always good to read the insights of an accomplished writer!

Fantastic site! What a fabulous idea. Michael Lewis is one of my favorite writers -- it's somehow comforting and inspiring to know that his preferred routine/creative process is very similar to my own. But his office is sooooooooooooo much better!

Thank you for your interesting article, and your blog is also full of useful information, many find useful information.

I loved this when I read it in The New New Journalism. I'm surprised you got permission to use so much of that interview here.

It is always interesting to understand how somebody else does their job. Writing as a profession is both creative and disciplined.
