Thanks to my narcissistic Google Alert for “Big Fat Whale,” I found this great interview with Mike Flugennock in the Washington City Paper. There’s a lot of great stuff in there, but my favorite quote has to be this:
WCP: What do you do when you’re in a rut or have writer’s block?
MF: There’s really no single thing I do in this situation. Generally, what helps—at least for me—is to just kick back, let go, and not agonize too much. Smoking a bowl and watching Meet The Press (or something like it) also helps; there’s nothing quite being pleasantly blazed while watching a bunch of self-important Washington “insiders” taking themselves far too seriously to break down my writer’s block.
But seriously kids, don’t do drugs. Unless you like fun.
