Thanks Tumblr. I thought we had this great relationship going on where I would find and post the kind of pop culture ephemera that passes by every day. And then I had to go and discover all these goddamn style blogs. In particular the mens style blogs, what with their handsome suits, exquisite ensambles, classic looks, master tailors and easily photographed confidence.
Now I’m convinced I need to become a writer, not for the novel pursuit of offering a literary landmark, but for the sole purpose of having money to amass a gentlemanly wardrobe. Still have to figure out the exact, you know, writing, part of it (still a little fuzzy on books vs. scripts).
So, thanks Tumblr. You sharply dressed jerk.

“How to be a writer” (Molly Backes)
This is a great piece that has been making the rounds across the Interwebs thanks to writerly types. And with good reason, it’s fantastic. I never would have stopped to think (maybe some day) how much being a bored latch-key kid helped my imagination and helped me become a writer.
