The trouble with being a writer is that you don't get acknowledged. I'll go somewhere to write--the coffee joint, a park, the university--but I just don't stick out enough. If I'm writing by hand I'm just some guy doing a crossword puzzle or making out his grocery list in a park, and no one is compelled to approach me and tell me how brilliant I am. If I'm using my laptop I'm just some guy updating his Facebook page at the cafe or doing his homework at the university. Beautiful med students won't tell a guy updating his Facebook page how much they want to sleep with him. They just won't. I need to stick out more.
Maybe if I grow a beard. Yeah, that should do it.
On a more realistic note, I'll be giving away a book I absolutely love at the end of January. I have multiple copies of it, so be sure you're an email subscriber (which you can do in the sidebar) to be eligible for that.
