I call myself a freelance writer. Meaning that I love the art and dance and music and ineffable joys of words written and spoken, but ultimately I am a self-employed fellow taking/generating work where I can find it. So when I read this obituary, I enjoyed this quote:
“I’ve always wanted to be what I have become, a journeyman writer,” he told The Guardian of London in 1994.
I also liked this bit:
He was the founder and life president of the Association for the Annihilation of the Aberrant Apostrophe, a fictional organization dedicated to combating false plurals like tomato’s and road signs like the one he spotted near Sevenoaks, with letters three feet high that read BUSE’S ONLY.
