Oh St. Jude, hear my prayer
From yesterday's USA Today, a lovely article about Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan and being a Red Sox fan:
Good writers, O'Nan says, have a "tragic and complex sense of life and empathy for the underdog. Baseball is also about patience and understanding, like writing." King adds: "Writers like baseball because it has rules but no clock. It's a game built in paragraphs which are called innings, in a season where the chapters are called games."
