“As far as arms go, I think they’re the one part of the body that tends to get short shrift in fiction, even though they’re the place where the trouble between people usually gets its start.” – Gary Lutz (from Justin Taylor interview in Bookslut)

  1. I’m not sure I ever have or haven’t. If the arms were doing something, I suppose I did. But it would be what they were doing, not them per se.

  2. I’m telling you, this Lutz fellow makes me nervous. He seems to be one of those clever, capable men who lays down the Laws of Writing in such a way as to render me wordless.
