The Writer’s Voice
Last week I had lunch with a group of writers in the local chapter of The Writer’s Union. We meet maybe once a month at most, and there’s nothing formal or even particularly literary about these get-togethers. I think we do it just to be in the company of other people who share and understand the experience of spending a lot of time alone writing.
This is probably why there are ‘cop bars’ where the topic of conversation I suspect is more often about sports than their job. It’s just comfortable being around those who share a way of life that ‘civilians’ rarely understand.
