AN author who teaches writers nothing teaches no one. What matters, therefore, is the exemplary character of production, which is able first to induce other producers to produce, and second to put an improved apparatus at their disposal. And this apparatus is better the more consumers it is able to turn into producers – that is, readers or spectators into collaborators.

  from "The Author as Producer" by Walter Benjamin

 

  

… I doubt if one writer ever has a satisfactory conversation with another writer… the writer unless he is written out is too busy trying to say what his demon drives him to say before he dies to have time to talk shop with another writer… actually no writer has very much in common with another writer.

  William Faulkner in Faulkner in the University
