WRITERS ON WRITING #11: John Clarke


I’ve known a few people in my life who wanted to be writers but they were waiting for the finger of God to light upon them, whereupon they would jump on their steed and race down for some ink, and come back and lay the parchment out, pause briefly and write the definitive novel.
  Doesn’t happen.  One of the things you need to do if you’re interested in writing, is write.  You need to write letters, write emails, write stuff.  And any writing is good training for working out who you are and what sort of writer you want to be.

Interview in The Sydney Morning Herald (May 2007)
