Monday's RQ

Monday's Reader Question: What's the best thing about being a writer . . . and what's the hardest?

The best thing, finally, is the legitimate excuse I have for living inside my head. It's very hard to come out of that place sometimes not least because I like it there. Everyone's nice to me. But, no, the hardest thing is my unresolved angst over not owning a business suit. I should just go buy one and sit in the thing all day at my desk, but then I might have to find a new place to work without so strict a dress code.

  1. Suits appear to be way out, anyway--I actually went looking for a matching blazer and pants at Ann Taylor Loft last week, and found *nothing*. So, apparently, you're a trendsetter, Erin!

    BTW, I love the way you articulate that "the best the legitimate excuse I have for living inside my head." Honestly? That's a big part of what I like about the academic life, too. I would be *so* bad in a cubicle workplace.
