"this is your life. still living on the west side street where you grew up. dividing your life between the writing desk and the telephone table and the analyst's couch. is this the woman everybody envies? is this the woman that's supposed to have the answer? ask kathryn kuhlman. or clare booth luce. or helen gurley brown. start your own religion. become a faith healer. marry money. start a magazine. those people have answers. but not writers. we are paid for our pain. and our nightmares. we are paid to drift foggily from the typewriter to the kitchen stove (where we make still another pot of coffee and remark to ourselves that we really ought to mop the kitchen floor). then we drift back. we get paranoid from too much solitude and believe our publishers are ripping us off or our readers are pestering us. we get a dozen raving mash notes and one unsigned, illiterate hate letter and remember only the hate letter. we spend so much time alone, brooding, that we become obsessed with sex, with fame, with chimerical business deals. we hunger for love, ache for sex-- and yet, when we get it, dispose of it quickly so as not to let it interfere with our writing. unhappiness is our element. we come to believe we can't function without it."

snoellelong: i feel badly for people who have to live with writers. having to deal with the unique "creative genius." they deserve awards.
