What is your narrative of your writing life? Were you singled out as the most talented writer in High School, voted most likely to get published? Were you the hot shot of your MFA program, whispered about with jealousy and contempt. Did you publish the first story you ever sent out and then never again? Did you slink away from a writer’s conference without a single friend or contact? Did you never send anything out? Are you getting up a dawn, or, like Mary Higgins Clark, typing away on the fire escape after all the kids are asleep? Are you a starter who never finishes? Do you get up at dawn and feel saintly or stay up all night and smoke? Are you frail, intrepid, Quixotic or cautious. Are you proud or ashamed?
What’s your story?
