Finally, online writers and content producers are getting their day in the sun.
As one more way to celebrate the “year of the online writer” I’m setting out to bring you regular Q&As with some of our most esteemed colleagues, friends, and writing heroes, to explore the craft of the writer at work.
I want to give you a glimpse into the minds and the habitats of the scribes I admire.
The Writer Files — debuting Thursday with my interview of our very own Brian Clark — will be a regular feature on Copyblogger, inspired in equal parts by Jill Krementz’s pictorial The Writer’s Desk (photos of famous writers at work), and the Proust Questionnaire (an insider’s look at prominent figures).
As John Updike described the writer’s process …
Our task as we sit (or stand or lie) is to rise above the setting, with its comforts and distractions, into a relationship with our ideal reader, who wishes from us nothing but the fruit of our best instincts, most honest inklings, and firmest persuasions.
I hope The Writer Files will become your passport to some enlightening answers about that very process.
