Commonplace

“You write because of the pleasure. I write because I love the activity. I’ve always been honest about my stuff. I’ve never thought more of my work than I thought should be thought of it. But there’s the phrase they keep repeating, ‘Write what you know.’ I don’t agree with that. Write about what you don’t know. And then find out about it.”

–Stephen Dixon, in one of the best interviews I’ve ever read with the man, for the Baltimore City Paper
