Why Nathan Writes

Nathan Whitlock on Jim Crace on writing.

Steven W. Beattie on same.

I think I write because most everything else I've done and most everything else I do, ends up boring me. Oh yeah, and my profound love of language and humanity, that's key. And because I'm fucking good at it! And I suck horseballs at visual art, music, sports and computer programming. Believe me, were I not tone-deaf, I'd be the frontman of an obscure rock band. You know, the sort that music nerds think make them cool, because they've heard of it and you haven't.
