Beyond Talent: John Irving and the Passionate Craft of Creativity.
Amabile, Teresa M.
American Psychologist, v56 n4 p333-36 Apr 2001
Uses the thoughts and work of novelist John Irving to illustrate the prominence of non-talent components in the componential model of creativity, explaining that raw talent, clever imagination, and a creative personality are insufficient to ensure creative success and that hard work and love of a craft (intrinsic motivation) are at least as important.
