Confession: I often fantasize about the day when someone will interview me about the jobs I had before I became a successful writer. Here’s a teaser - every time I get an interoffice envelope, I look at all the crossed-out names to see if it’s one I’ve gotten before.
Of course, I’ll probably never have a line as good as this one from Strayed’s interview: “This is the main thing that I want in this interview, is to say that in the Days of Yore, girls, there was bush, and it was fun.”
Well, I also like to keep using my pencils until the sharpened part comes right up to the metal part of the eraser. It feels so amazing when I get a long one again.
