…and many more Maggie Nelson gems, at About Creativity:

“Shifting genres has been helpful; so has asking the question, “Can I do X?” For example, I wrote little lyric poems for many years, then, when approaching my book Jane: A Murder, I started asking: Can a collection of little lyric poems tell, or at least contain, the complicated story of an awful murder in my family? It seemed impossible, so I set out to try it.” – Maggie Nelson, in conversation with Dan Brodnitz
