My creative writing classmate and I went down to the coke machine during the break. His name was Jack and he had a wry sense of humour. Every conference we went to, he would make me laugh, speculating about who was sleeping with whom. He was a great adventure writer and because of his position as the head of a large factory, he had a good feel for anything to do with the business world.
I loved everything I read of his.
The professor had been telling us how each of us was unique. Yes, he said, the subjects we were writing about had been written about before, but not from our point of view.
Unfortunately, Jack’s attitude is common today. Why?
Do people want to hear what we have to say?
