At times it may seem painfully obvious, but The Urchins are, in fact, writers. I’m sorry you had to hear it like this. When someone asks, “So, what do you do for a living?” The answer is, no matter what our current source of income may be, “oh, I’m a writer.” And, inevitably, the next question is, “Oh, like books?” or “God, I wish I could write. I have all these ideas, but I just don’t have the time or blah blah blah.” Everyone has time – just turn off the TV, log off Facebook, or whatever it is you’re doing. If you want to be a writer, then sit down and write. There’s actually a great new website for either beginners or those who just need a bit of inspiration.
