David Thayer of Collected Miscellany discusses the writer at work — the solace he receives from knowing a major player works near his clothes closet, the frustration of word count (What? You only managed 497.5 words today? Slacker!), and fact that writing can never be truly represented on film. Though we do frequently crumple our rejected pages into paper balls — they make excellent cat toys. Someday, we’re going to real cleaning (as opposed to the pretend thing we currently practice) and dig all the abandoned balls from under the various pieces of furniture. The felines will think it’s Christmas despite the clear absence of a tree to knock over.
