I’ve always believed writing is intensely personal – even if you’re writing fiction. Everything is rooted in your own mind and your own vision. That being said, I love reading author interviews to see where they write from, and compare it to the place from which I write. Not to change anything necessarily (maybe sometimes, though!) but just out of interest and curiosity.
I came across these two interviews with Raymond Carver, and to finish out our time with him I wanted to share them today. I think reading them is important and inspiring o us in thinking about our own relationships with our writing, and even our relationship with his (and other writer’s) writing.

I’ll look forward to hearing your thoughts and interpretations!
