The Simple Life

by bryanthomas

"Mom, I've got to stand in front of my whole class tomorrow and tell them what you do for a living. So what do I say?" "Tell them I'm an author."

"They'll want to know why you write." "Tell them that the voices in my head are different characters and they feature in my novels."

"Aren't people who have voices in their head usually in some sort of restraining harness?" "I suppose, but maybe they don't write bestselling novels."

"I'll probably tell them you're a hooker." "A hooker! Why?"

"Trust me, Mom. It'll make life a lot simpler for me."

@bernardtwindwil Thanks, bernard. I think most writers have voices in their head.

After we first got married, my wife asked me how I write my realistic dialogue. I told her the characters in my head just dictated it to me and I wrote down what they told me to. She said, "Promise me not to ever tell this to anybody else." Yeah, a hooker sounds good.
