What would you think if someone said that to you? People are always asking me how I came to be a writer. She had a golden voice and said, "I am giving you the gift of writing. Go forth and write. But you know, whenever you read about prophets, they always cry to God, "Oh Lord, why me? At any rate, I have just told you why I became a writer. I make up stories about everything. Absolutely everything on earth. I see something, hear something, read something, and my mind starts creating a story. Storytelling is natural to me.
When people ask me how I came to be a writer, what I want to ask in return is, What is in your head in place of stories? What do you think about while listening to a terminally boring speech? While driving a car? While putting the sixth load of wash in the machine? To me, this is the real mystery of life. The Hippocratic oath is nothing compared to this.
What is that thing someone said about opening a vein and spilling your blood onto the paper? Writing is really, really hard work. By golly, I bet I sit on my fanny six to ten hours a day. I pace the floor thinking about "what happens next. Now, really, does it sound like a writer suffers more than, say, a secretary? She has to be awakened by an alarm clock I wake when I want to , get the kids and hubby off, work for a boss who never praises her, then do another shift of work when she gets home.
How did you get to be one? If you can drive a truck, you do that. If you can hassle people without conscience. If you have stories in your head you write them down. The world at large has decided that writers are smarter, more astute, more enlightened, more whatever than other people, so they treat them with awe and reverence.
Start your review of Remembrance Write a review Jan 22, Jessica Coligny rated it liked it The only reason why I gave this book three stars is because the story of Talis and Callie was actually pretty interesting. Thankfully, it took up most of the book. The rest of it was pretty annoying, though. In the beginning of the book, I got tired of the author using the book as a means to poke fun at her critics.
