NEVER SAY ‘I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A WRITER’

Standard

Except, in my case that was almost true, if you count ‘since 22’ as ‘always.’ I had this great revelation about it this weekend. I never post on weekends or holidays…no, that’s not the great revelation. Even you have already noticed that. But three days without posting mean 72 hours to have an actual revelation, so here it is. When I was in my early 20s my then significant other (should there be a comma in there somewhere? I have no idea) was studying at City University with some very significant writers. Then he became a very significant writer. All this made me extremely self conscious about writing anything more literary than a letter to the editor. Two years ago I threw caution to the wind, and when it didn’t immediately blow back into my face, started writing. And there you have it.

On the rare chance that you might assume that this is a photo of my ex, it’s not. It’s Jerzy Kosinski, one of the significant authors who taught him.Image
