Perchance: Making it as a Writer

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.
