I’m discovering that I sort of hate pretentious artistic types.

I’m not talking about real artists.

Not that real artists can’t be pretentious, but it’s different.

I have a lot of artistic friends (painters, musicians,¬†photographers—lots of photographers) and they just can’t help themselves. They have to be artistic or their brains will freaking explode.

Me? I’m a writer.

And I’m not a Writer…as in…”I write, THEREFORE I AM.” I just like to write. I think it’s cool. And because I have so many communications issues that if I don’t say what I’m thinking in some way or another I’ll bust my spleen. (more…)
