    This was a weird week for me, but I've had a lot of encouragement with my writing. I had a good long chat with a good friend of mine, a professional, tell me that he points to my shit when he talks about improving when you write every day. Then, I got some kind words from right here at Whitechapel (a place with a hair-trigger bullshitometer.

    I'm not so naive to think that 2010 is The Year I Make Fat Ducats Off Being A Writer, but, should I make it, it'll be the year I look back and pinpoint that this was the turning point.

    Of course, it also means I can't give up and go become a lobsterman off the Maine coast. Which looks very attractive sometimes.

    Now the working-class pugnacity comes out.
