Stewart O'Nan on writing

The Writers Almanac says today is Stewart O'Nan's birthday. I loved Last Night at the Lobster - the characters were so real to me, as was the restaurant. I'm not quite as big a fan of Songs for the Missing because he chose to have some scenes only alluded to, and I found that frustrating as a reader.

Still, I totally agree with this quote of his about writing: "The two hardest things about writing are starting and not stopping."
