I very much enjoyed this interview by Eric Danton with musician Josh Ritter. I was impressed by his perspective on being a writer, especially in moments of personal crisis. Referring to the end of his marriage, Ritter says,
“This was an important moment for me, it was a big moment in my life, and I felt like if I didn’t write about this I was betraying what it was to be a writer,” he says. “To get to this point in my career and not write about that, felt foolish.” He also tried not to censor what he was writing, which led to some raw moments.
