Friday Fun: Lawrence Block

For this week’s Friday Fun, I found a few video interviews with Uncle Larry. Lawrence Block wrote a regular column about writing professionally for years, and his books on writing continue to sell. He’s certainly the man to listen to for advice on this subject. He is one of the most prolific and successful authors working in the crime/detective fiction genre today.

Here’s what Uncle Larry has to say about writ ng for money, publicity photos, the craft of writing, and retiring from the field after a long and illustrious career.

I hope this informs, helps to inspire, or at least amuses you. If you enjoy Mr. Block on these videos, I highly recommend you pick up some of his work.

Thanks for listening.
