  1. Okay, I’ll put my hand up.
    Why is this snap-worthy?
    I don’t get it.

    Yours, waiting glumly chin to palm in a corner for an answer to an obviously obvious question,


    1. you know…the thought of having an idea and then thinking, ‘but how will I pay for it?’ and then thinking, ‘oh, I know, I’ll write a novel, that will fund it’. It’s the opposite of how life usually works…’I’d like to write a novel, but how on earth will I pay for things if I am writing instead of making a living?’

      1. OH!
        Oh. Yeah. I totally knew THAT. I just, um, wanted you to see if YOU knew it.

        Actually, I thought it might have had something to do with the gall that non-writer folks have when they say “I wish I could do something easy, like write a book or something”.
        I had one of the science types come to me at work last week and ask where she could submit some poetry, you know, to get her publications up for promotion. I went to ask her where I could submit some algorithms I’d been drafting, you know to get some numbers out there for a change.

        THAT is YOUR side and THIS is mine!

  2. Gorgeous.
    One of Paul Auster’s less interesting novels, written after a fallow period, is about someone trying to sell a game, I believe.
    Not only that, I believe he also tried to do same, between selling novels.
