|Right now. If I were a writer I could spin this.|
As I keep saying, I have enough half books and whole books and chapter outlines and book proposals in the drawer already. I even have two books that sold—one fiction and one nonfiction—that never saw print. Same old story: The editor left the house.
And after being continuously and prominently in print as a magazine writer for decades, I have no desire to write a self-serving autobiography for my filing cabinet. As John Cheever so brilliantly said, “I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss — you can’t do it alone.”
