Literrors

Can a writer date a writer?

It’s worked before. Take Mary and Percy Shelley. Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning. Joan Didion and John Dunne. Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes.

Just kidding.

But this one might be doomed. We’re all drawn-out-drama, all thunderstorms and lightening bolts. You know, we’re a conversational shipwreck—in a good way. But sooner or later, my head might end up in the oven.

  1. Just make sure you get it right the first time instead of that loser Plath who took four tries before she offed herself!

    You know I had to comment on this. :)

  2. For what it’s worth, I’ve never had any success dating other writers. I used to think it would be ideal, but in my experience, two writers – especially two poets, god forbid – equals unholy, legendary strife. Also I’m just way too competitive.
