3 women from chelseaI was talking to an old friend who mentioned a writer who we both grew up with. He’d been over for dinner. The dinner hadn’t gone well. My friend said that the writer spent the whole evening talking about his work.

A lot of artists spend a gross amount of  time self-promoting. It is the ‘oxygen of success’. (I’m stealing that line from the New York Times.) ‘Giving a good interview’ has become as important or more important than good writing.
