I was listening to an interview with Edward Jones on the radio behind the cash register. He is the author of Lost In The City, All Aunt Hagar's Children, and won a Pulitzer for The Known World. He said some nice things. "If you write you are a writer, even if you are never published." And, "If you start to think too much of yourself, that's the beginning of the end." He made me glad the CD player is broke.
