Have you watched the show GIRLS on HBO? My reaction is mixed but there was one encounter I relished with the main character, Hannah, and a guy she's interested in.

Guy: "You don't have a job?"
Hannah: "I'm a writer."
Guy: "So, that's how you make a living?"
Hannah: (Silence)

Sometimes it's difficult to explain what you're doing if it doesn't fall into a traditional category with traditional outputs, you know? 

"They say living well is the best revenge but sometimes writing well is even better."


  1. I LOVE James Franco! He seems like he'd be fun to hang out with, plus he's a reader and a writer which makes him even hotter. That's such a great quote, too; I'm definitely tweeting! I don't get HBO so I haven't seen this show, but I've heard about it. Thanks for sharing James' article!

  2. Ha, I love that exchange. :) I like the show in small doses, I think. Some of it's clever, some of it's overdone, but it's pretty enjoyable.

  3. haha, that pretty much sums it all up for us writers.

  4. That is the perfect quote - sometimes writing well is even better!

  5. The pen is mightier than the gossiping tongue!

    Great quote!
