Here's a little something from Shome Dasgupta's site, The Laughing Yeti, where he asks writers to talk a little bit about reading and writing. Here's what I said:

"A friend of mine told me that the only way to get rid of writer's block is to read a lot of books. I call bullshit. Stop reading and analyzing and tearing apart other people's words and lives looking for flaws, imperfections to capitalize on. Read books because you love them, because the Cat in the Hat is a true friend, because you'll never experience America the way Dean and Sal did, because Huck Finn changed the world. If you want to get rid of writer's block, turn off your goddam laptop and get some fresh air."

Here's what some other people said:
