The Two Surprising Qualities of Successful Writers

Novelist Jonathan Safran Foer beautifully dissects the mythology surrounding writers block. “In my experience my students and fellow writers rarely lack creative ideas but more often develop a sense of not caring or not being emotionally invested in their ideas.”

His plethora of experience offers an interesting perspective on how imagination should trump efficiency and how some of the best writers he knows wrote books which were entirely different to what they originally intended to write about.

A must watch for anyone interested in the processes of art and creativity.
