What I Think About When I Think About Napping

(Quoting-from-articles-I-wrote-and-also-from-interviews-with-two-writers-whose-work-I-admire catch-up post, four of five.)

From a brief, undated (as far as I can tell) interview:

The Short Review: How long did it take you to write all the stories in your collection?

J. Robert Lennon: About a year, all told. […]

The Short Review: Did you have a collection in mind when you were writing them?

J. Robert Lennon: Not at first—I was just killing time while my son was taking naps. But after 20 or so I decided that I was actually writing a book, and began to take the project more seriously.

Re Lennon: see also; re naps: see also, see also.
