I've never successfully orchestrated a project that made me money while I slept. Worried I'd be pegged by lazy underwriters and critics wanting a repeat? Perhaps. Too naive to play the market better? Probably. If only emblems were my calling. Maybe I prefer to subsist on cheap food and working long hours so I can wave my freak flag freely and unexpurgated. Who needs caviar and champagne when there's cool stories to create for curious minds to discover? Therein lies the true currency; an authentic parlay between reader and author over story. Crafting narrative is my god. No spoilers, please!
