Some very cool news:  The National Book Foundation just announced that Smith’s autobiography “Just Kids,” covering her years as muse to photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, won a National Book Award this year in the non-fiction category.

More winners here.

Add: Smith recently told Galleycat that writing is like exercise.

 “You have to commit to doing it and you have to do it every day,” she said.

I wonder if blogging counts?

    hell yes, blogging counts. i can't seem to do it everyday. i planned to create something everyday, and can't seem to do that either.
    i did see a Mapplethorpe show in Cincinnati years ago. perhaps you remember the opening? when the musuem curator was arrested for pornography? so ridiculous
