I am standing behind the bread table. Some industry friends introduce me to their friend, who it turns out is also a an artist.
GUY: "So, you're a writer, really? Who is your favorite playwright?"
ME: "Playwright.....? Ummm..."
GUY: "Okay, who do you read?"
ME: "Who do I read? Hmm..."
The reality is, working two jobs and using what little time I have in between to write and pursue a myriad of unpaid passion projects means that I don't really read books anymore. Most of what I read is Jezebel, Twitter, and Facebook.
It makes me sad.
