On writing

There’s an excellent article in the Guardian about writing as a craft. The theme is literary non-fiction, but the authors interviewed go beyond that.

I particularly like Robert Macfarlane’s comments about reading good and bad writers to learn the skills, as well as Francis Spufford on visiting the bookshop when your own writing’s not going well.
