Writerly Stuff

7 09 2009

As I was mowing the lawn today, it struck me that this is not a very writerly thing to be doing. I think I’ll spend the rest of my holiday holed up in a cheap motel in a seedy neighborhood in a foreign country. Perhaps I’ll play Russian roulette while sipping down a bottle of cheap whiskey and injecting and/or snorting various substances.

That’s the sort of thing that writers do, right?

…I guess it would beat mowing the lawn…

See that’s the problem with Russian roulette. If you’re a Big Name Author or Radically Eccentric, a Hemingway or a Hunter S. Thompson, it’s acceptable. If you’re Just A Writer, then it’s merely pathetic.

Also, don’t play Polish roulette. (One round in the clip of an automatic pistol.)

Whoo! Thanks for the tip about not using an automatic. I’ve never really done this before, and that was a close one.

…this could have been really embartassing…

One beer, and I can’t write. I don’t know how Rimbaud and Byron and all them did it.

In all honesy, me neither.

I lived a pretty bohemian lifestyle back in my early twenties, told people I was a writer, but hardly wrote a single word during that time. Now, I’m verging on living a prohibition era lifestyle — with a real job and kids, no less — and the words seem to flow pretty free these days.

I think this may be an ongoing conversation on my blog. There’s a huge disconnect between the idealized lifestyle of a writer and the real deal.
