“I hate writing, I love having written.”
Dorothy Parker is one of my all time favorite writers. Bucking gender bias and a trend for women of her day to be poised and graceful, Ms Parker turned the literary world on its head. She wrote deeply and shallowly simultaneously, because that’s how most people are: deep and shallow simultaneously.
As I embark on publishing my first novel I am thrilled to have completed a manuscript. I don’t hate writing, but I do love having written. I feel like I can finally put my big boy pants on and walk down the street…shoes and shirt come later.
