The problem with coming back…

Is that first walk up to you, my face growing more familiar with each step. I look different, but not much. The circumstances and lighting are most of it.

It’s autumn now. It’s been months. How has it been months? What have I been doing?

And it’s always nothing. I was sad sometimes and crazy, chest-thumpingly happy other times. But mostly I was just normal. That sounds disappointing, but it wasn’t. I hardly noticed nothing amazing was happening to me.

Having written > writing

Dorothy Parker said, “I hate writing. I love having written.”

I second that.

I recently read Steve Hely’s How I Became A Famous Novelist, a novel about a slacker who decides to get rich by writing a lowbrow novel that will appeal to the masses. I’ve joked about doing the same thing.

A few weeks ago, I went to a speaking event by the screenwriting team responsible for Night at the Museum, Taxi (with Jimmy Fallon – not to be confused with the Scorcese gem Taxi Driver), and Reno 911! The guys were really down-to-earth, honest, and funny about selling out. (Watch a funny faux-infomercial about their new book.)

This weekend, I abruptly stopped smooching someone and said, “Wait. Does your therapist know about this?”

He said no and pulled my mouth back to his. I pulled away.

“Maybe you should tell her about me,” I said.
