I have become a writer .......

Okay ......so it hasen't happened .........but oh if
it did ......I could really act the part
Reclusive.....only giving interviews to
vanityfair.....who's who.........
New York journal
The writers almanac
And I could start a wine cellar
with hand hewn beams
And mirrored doors
Instead of home brewing
Oh..........And the women!
They might flock about me
at the book reviews
and signings
and slip me
phone numbers
in secret
Or I could become the local colleges'
visiting egomaniac
Oh........Just imagine
what a writer I could be........

No need for all that. We here at HP flack around you because you are indeed a writer of caliber and integrity.

Hahaha, I am guessing that the ladies leaving their phone numbers is a bigger incentive than the pay you may receive.

Cute poem, but in my mind you are already a writer.

Oh, every male writer's dream...we all dream and live vicariously through others. And we reach to help impose upon some of those dreams these surprising things we define as our happy realities. A thoughtful reflection you have shared with such an inviting title. Thank you.

As writers, it is such a beautiful dream, isn't it? I think you will have your chance and for what you'd wish to go along with it. ; )

The trappings of celebrity are the last thing that I would want or seek. I am a writer because I write well not because I have been able to capitalize on my skill. Yours are good words and thoughts. Thanks for sharing them.

Morning ahorseback.

It probably is nice having all those ladies leaving phone numbers and being there every time you turn a corner. But there comes a time in life when you are happy with what you have and love your piece and quiet.

Take care.
