Ethan Canin says

Author Ethan Canin (America, America), on the show with my co-host Marrie Stone, says don't think about you're writing unless you're writing.

I like that.

It's so easy to trick yourself into thinking you're working when you're thinking, but you're truly not working. Yes, thinking about your work has it's place. But how much actually gets accomplished through pondering. Not a heck of a lot.

You can listen to the show in a few days when it will be available via podcast, right here.

I think I might be a little bit in love with Ethan Canin. It's okay. You can tell Jeff. These author crushes come and go. But there's a lot there to love.
