Tony Pierce has mastered IM fiction chatting with people like Lenny Kravitz and Anna Kournikova.

Now, Dawn Olsen perfects the straight IMterview with writer Neal Pollack. He likens bloggers to “a prison full of lunatics shouting to see the warden.” He notes later that “you probably have as many loyal readers as the average midlist fiction writer.”

E-mail interviews often secrete preachy, overboiled prose; good IMterviews spurt globules of memorable text and, for those who care, record context and spelling.

I’d love to read articles woven from IMterviews. The writer would build her case, but the source documents would be linked for anyone’s perusal.
