I've been telling my bro about quitting writing for some time now. lol. last year was the worst year. I got only around 150$ for the whole year royalty. I mean, how do you think I can survive? better I back into being a waiter. anyway, I wrote an artist statement, a requirement for a residency, a short piece about my impartiality view in being a writer, and how nihilism is the drive and my apolitical stance because you know, I don't see the need to change the social structure (though I realize writing is always political anyway). and how I perceive myself as a conduit. I had such massive fun writing that statement and I really liked it.
