C-Span2 has a fascinating video interview with George Weigel , Catholic theologian and First Things board member. Weigel is the author of over a dozen books, including Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II .
In the revealing interview, Weigel shares his preferred Bible translation (RSV), how he begins a project (extensive outlining), and the key to his prolific productivity (mid-day napsI think naps are a great invention; perhaps Italys greatest contribution to human civilization.).
Highly recommended for writers, editors, and anyone else who wants to learn more about the craft of authorship.
