RIP Tom Clancy 1947 – 2013 Writer’s Digest 2001 Interview

“I just keep it simple: Tell the damn story.”


I’ve had friends suggest writing courses, expensive programs, and usually from people who haven’t written anything similar to what I try to write, but that’s cool – everyone wants to be helpful. I’ve finished two books, start to finish, with just microsoft word and probably 30% hearing loss due to how loud I listen to my music when I write, but I think Clancy’s advice to keep it simple and just write the story is the best one I’ve read. Found a Writer’s Digest article featuring Tom Clancy that they reposted. I’m reposting it here.


A legendary storyteller is lost.
