Mojo Monday: Pulitzer Prize Winner Jennifer Egan Says, “All That Matters….”

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your spirits, buoy you up, and help you get your mojo on.


Today? Jennifer Egan.  Author of my favorite book of the year A Visit from the Goon Squad and, as of a few days ago, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

What advice does this word maven give to writers?

Pretty simple really: “All that matters…and the hardest thing…and this is really hard…is just to try to do some decent work…and keep getting better.”

That, and stop worrying about the Joneses.

Watch.
