Interesting: Double Pulitzer Winner Weingarten Reflects on Writing

Interesting Q&A here with The Washington Post's Gene Weingarten, winner of two Pulitzers, about his writing process. Called by humour writer Dave Barry "brilliant, funny and clinically insane," Weingarten won a Pulitzer for this feature about convincing renowned violinist Joshua Bell to play a $3.5-million Stradivarius for spare change in the DC Metro and a second Pulitzer in April for this story about a family whose baby died after being forgotten in the back seat of a car on a hot summer day - something Weingarten admits he once almost did himself.
