“Tell me first what are the things, the actual, concrete things that harm a writer?”
“Politics, women, drink, money, ambition. And the lack of politics, women, drink, money and ambition…”
ORDERS: None for this weekend. Go into harm’s way. Pleasure’s way. Be safe. Do nothing. As you like…
No, I changed my mind. RUN into harm’s way. Safe living makes for boring writing.
BUT, NOW, I PONDER: This speaks to me, because I love and am distracted by woman, as much, more so, than by men. For a straight woman… what harms a writer? Politics, men, drink, money, ambition?
For a mother-writer… Children, men, housework, need to make money, fear of ambition?
