The Lower Frequencies: How Donna Tartt Writes

Last night, as part of the Brooklyn By The Book series, Maud Newton interviewed Donna Tartt.

Via Iris Blasi, here’s a particularly nice exchange about writing slow:

MAUD NEWTON: Does it bother you when people talk about how long it takes you to write your novels?

DONNA TARTT: No, it doesn’t, really. It’s the only way that I can write at all. It’s the only way that I can enjoy writing. When I try to speed it up it’s just no fun. In order for me to enjoy what I do, and have a good time doing it…

I had a teacher a long time ago. He said, “If you’re not enjoying something, it’s almost always because you’re doing it too fast.

[laughter]

It’s very true.

MAUD NEWTON: It is true, in many contexts.

[laughter]

Donna Tartt! I had the best time. Posted some other things from the night over at my site, if you’re interested.
