A “Writer” Is…

Long ago and far away, when I was young and foolish – like last week – I had this image of what A Writer was or is.   A “writer” is  someone who keeps weird hours, drinks bad coffee, roams their own reality,  swings from euphoria to depression at the drop of a hat, and smokes Maduros like a chimney.  A writer is reclusive, creative, eccentric. Elusive. Can stand almost anything except being interrupted when on the cusp of a brilliant stroke of genius. Every five minutes. Has a spouse who understands that when I’m looking at the window, I am ‘working.’

Guess I better work on that Maduro thing.

What does “writer” mean to you?

  1. Oh, dear! You paint yourself so mercurial, and somehow, I don¹t think you really are as bad as you say. All those ³writer² characteristics could be a mental disorder,your know, or a brain chemistry thingŠexcept the Maduro. Those things just smell bad and they make your writing stink‹quite literally! Ha, ha! I enjoy your writing so it must have been done between smokes. : ) Carol A. Brown
