I uncovered a cool website two days ago called Arts and Letters Daily(aldaily.com). It’s an archive of insightful essays on culture, politics, philosophy, literature, science and everything else. Anyway, lookee what I found!

If you are not convinced, here’s an excerpt on failed sentence making:
“I thought of it as the literary equivalent of stonewashing jeans or building with distressed wood — creating pleasing imperfections by first polishing and then artfully tarnishing. I built an entire novel this way. It took me a long time to do it, and the novel wasn’t any good.”
