WHY WRITING IS HARDER THAN BLOGGING: “Oddly, Eggers is motivated by his sense of how short life is. All that time getting going and thinking about how short life is? Oh, the pain. Blogging, by contrast, is the continual relief from that pain.”

Writing books and other long pieces is harder than blogging — I think you have to load a lot more stuff into RAM before you can really work on it. When I was writing my last book (Army of Davids) I worked solely at the computer in my study, and kept my browser closed when I wasn’t actually doing research. I do the same thing, generally, when I’m writing law review articles.
