Swallowed by a Whale: How to Survive the Writing Life

'Fiction was invented the day Jonah arrived home and told his wife that he was three days late because he had been swallowed by a whale.' -- Gabriel García Márquez

In this specially-commissioned anthology, sixty accomplished authors share their inspirations and daily routines, the pleasure or pain of hitting their literary goals and let us in on their golden rules for staying on track. How do you find inspiration? How do you cope with writer's block? Pencil or computer? Inside or out? And where do good ideas really come from?
