Charles Tiayon's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:43 AM

No matter how productive we are, our time–unlike our wishful imagination–is just limited. Think of all the optimistic agendas you’ve had for your day. And think of how many times life seems to have had its own agenda and has met your request with denial. I, of all people, can relate to that. I’m a newly graduated dentist with a wide array of interests, which have the nasty habit of occasional colliding with reality.

What I want to doI want to write

Since I was a kid, I’ve always found the simple act of joining random letters into meaningful words to be magical.

I want to have time

To spend with my lovely fiancée, to hang out with friends, to go to the cinema, to sit home and read a captivating novel, enjoying all the exotic worlds it takes me to.

I want to change

By learning new languages, collecting new faces, and by traveling to a far virgin place with many mysterious stories to tell.

What I really end up doingI work

The Golden Age for Writers - Esquire

The Golden Age for Writers - Esquire | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Writers have always been whiners. For nearly a hundred years, since at least the time of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the death of the novel has been presaged. And now, egged on by BuzzFeed and video games and just general hypercaffeinated, e-mail-all-the-time ADHD, the book is apparently, finally, about to die. At least we'll have good stuff to read while we wait. This fall alone, the number of big books published by major writers is astounding: Michael Chabon, Zadie Smith, Junot Díaz, Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie, and about a half dozen others. Not that the list has stopped anyone from complaining. Literary circles have been so full of pity for so long that they can't accept the optimistic truth: We're living in a golden age for writers and writing."
