Novelist Charles Bock came to speak at Bennington during the Winter residency.
And he leveled with us about hard it is to produce a novel, to find time to write along with all of the other responsibilities life has assigned us.
And then he said, but you know what? It's not really that hard. It's not that bad of a trade.
Because we get to illuminate the human condition.
Well, sure, when you put it that way, yeah, it's okay. It's more than okay.
