Writers Write about Their Rooms

Posted by The Smart Chick on February 14, 2014 in Good Egg, Bad Egg | ∞

Is it important to have a special place to write? Just a corner of a table or do we need an entire room? Do we or can we share that room? Read “The Writer’s Room” here.

The Smart Chick shares her office (aka writing room) with a philosopher, who happens to be her husband. Working out fine so far, although both are easily distracted!



A Slate Article about Eggheads!

Posted by The Smart Chick on February 14, 2014 in Literary Eggheads | ∞

“Adlai Stevenson, the Illinois governor and 1952 and 1956 Democratic presidential nominee was probably the most famous egghead of his time. A Unitarian (of course!), Stevenson would write and rewrite (and rewrite) his speeches. He bought half-hour blocks of television airtime, thinking that he’d use it to explain complicated issues to the public. In competition with the avuncular Eisenhower, a plain-spoken war hero, Stevenson lost—twice. (Stevenson had a sense of humor about his image. He once replied, when asked about being an intellectual in politics: ‘Via ovicapitum dura est’—’The way of the egghead is hard.’)”

Yup, it’s HARD all right . . . HARD BOILED! Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

Cluck, cluck,
