Inspired by the advice of a well-wisher …
You haven’t got a chance!’ she declares.
‘Not a chance to make a living as a writer!
Even the best writers have another job!’
Still, I don’t listen and don’t want to hear.
Still, I take my chances.
Why can’t the other job? I think.
Why can’t my other job, be another writing job?
Taking my chances.
And chancing my luck, I fancy that I must make chances.
And, in this mode, in the mode of my own chances, I carry on writing.
