I consider myself a rock'n'roll writer. By definition, of course, there is no such thing as a rock'n'roll writer. But if there was, then it would be me. I realise this isn't explaining too much what one is, but such is the rebellious nature of a rock'n'roll writer.
Ok, the idea is meant to be someone who writes with more passion than, say, technical ability. Also, with a good dollop of humour spattered on the top. As the poet says: "That's my story and I'm sticking to it."
They are only words on the page, there is no need in getting worked up over it. I was only just sayin'.
I started fairly young, at the ripe old age of fifteen, with a review of the Commodore 64 in Electronics Today. I believe I still have it around, but I refuse to look at it as it will be terrible. And no snide comments from the gallery thank you so much.
When I was in my 20s it was all I wanted to be. But then the rejection letters come in, and you starting thinking that maybe there are other things to be. Like employed.
