“[when]asked, “What should I do if I want to become a writer?”
“Well,” Doris said, with that steely twinkle in her dark eyes, “My best advice for
you, honey, is to stop if you possibly can! And if you just can’t, then get ready to work
like hell. Hang onto your day job. And remember, you may not make a living, but you’ll
make a wonderful life.”
