Here’s an excerpt from today’s installment (embedded above): “I had a blast as a kid writer … Nobody told me I couldn’t write a novel first crack. Nobody discouraged or encouraged me. I had no family. I had good, clean outdoor work. I caddied at country clubs … I got sober preceding this. So I was clearheaded, healthy, and very, very ambitious. It took me six published novels to tenuously earn a living as a writer. But I don’t view it as a struggle.”
