“There's something horrifying about having your memory become part of the public memory.” ~ Mary Karr
“When I think about it, if I had to choose, I'd rather be happy than write.” ~ Jean Rhys
Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Because even in winter I have bills to pay.
I'm wearied by the "There would be no joy in my life if I could not write!" folks, especially the ones who've not spent two decades with no other means to make a living. I have never loved writing, which usually surprises, and sometimes angers, people to hear, but it's the truth. Most often, I have loathed writing. But it's what I'm good at. So, it's what I do. There's no romance, no mystery, no pie in the sky. It's my job.
And that's it for now.
