So someone wrote about me that I try really hard to sound sophisticated, or use higher language or something like that. I don’t know, that disturbed me. First of all, because it’s untrue. I wrote once about my stream of consciousness style, and why it’s the best, and Henry astutely pointed out at root, I’m just lazy, so I just write and nearly never edit. The point being, the way I write is just the way I write, the way it comes out. It would take effort to write in any other style.
So it’s depressing because it means how I really am is apparently aristocratic and such. That doesn’t strike me as good. But what can I do. It’s just the way it comes out. As long as my writing philosophy is guided by laziness, I don’t know how I can change that.
