8 comments on “James Salter: “Write or Perish”

  1. I don’t know anything about Mr. Salter but the video does spark an interest. A trip to the bookstore is in order!

  2. They call him a “writer’s writer.” That means he doesn’t make any money doing it. Maybe he should switch to writing murder mysteries.

  3. Can’t help but notice that a lot of older writers won’t give up their typewriters. The keyboard for a computer is the same as a typewriter so why not convert? When these writers turn in their manuscripts, someone has to take their typed pages and retype the words into a word document. Seems like double work to me.

  4. Looks like the old guy does his writing in an attic. Guess that’s better than a basement.
