Lars Anderson

Sports Illustrated - Staff Writer                       

   

 

Why did you decide to be a writer?

-When I was growing up in Lincoln, Ne., I was an avid reader. I started writing at a young age and feel in love with the challenge of putting words onto the page in fresh, vivid ways.

 

 

What is the toughest part about being a writer?

-The toughest part is dealing with the pressure of deadlines. When you only have a few hours after an event to write a long feature in the magazine that will be read by millions, well, it's stressful.

 

 

What is the best part about working for SI?

-Two things: Working with some of the most talented editors, writers, and reporters in the country; and continually meeting new, engaging, interesting people. I consider it the best job the world.

 

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring writer?

-My advice? Write, write, write and then write some more. Writing is a skill that improves with experience. Even though I've been at the magazine for 16 years, I feel like I learn something new everyday in my writing.

 

 

What has been your most unusual interview so far?

-Flying on Air Force Two with the Vice President to a NASCAR race. It was an honor.

 

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

-My father, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, and Tom Osborne.
