Creating something from nothing

A really good interview with John Edgar Wideman, whose wisdom for writers (and others) is to consider it a great privilege to create something new. He says so much around us is processed and given to us, especially culture but also (interestingly) the experience of our  own lives, how we interpret what happens to us, and that we are lucky if we are able to ourselves create something new, something that isn't forced upon us.
