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 naps—“I think naps are a great invention; perhaps Italy’s greatest contribution to human civilization.”).

Highly recommended for writers, editors, and anyone else who wants to learn more about the craft of authorship.
