Writing Tips from David Foster Wallace

It’s a well known fact that I’m somewhat of a DFW fanboy, despite him often being called pretentious, overrated, and dangerous to look up to (while looking for this article, I came across multiple articles where publishers laugh at submitted drafts where the author is trying to be the new DFW.)

Despite all this, it’s inarguable that he definitely had something to say, and a very unique way of saying it. Linked below is excerpts from a longer interview where DFW talks all about his writing process and how to improve yours. Not only is it helpful, DFW has a way of speaking that makes it an extremely entertaining read as well. Check it out below:
