exactly 7 writing links

i don't usually do this (at least in such an outrightly bald fashion), but here are a few good links (courtesy slant truth)

- an
interview with philip roth

"You should let people fight with the books on their own and rediscover what they are and what they are not. Anything other than this talk. Fairytale talk. As soon as you generalise, you are in a completely different universe than that of literature, and there's no bridge between the two."

confessional poetics at
grapez: one, two, three, four, and five

and lastly, 7 reasons why poets get on this guy's nerves (here i feel i need to remind my readers that while i occasionally use profanity in my writing, i do not condone such flippant usage as is found in the title of this last linked post, no matter how "real" it may be. i'm not sure anyone needs to swear about something so trivial. by the by, i don't mean any offense to noah specifically, because i found myself laughing out loud at some of his posts; i am only pointing out what i see as an unfortunately skewed usage pattern.)
