I've tried to write at different times in the past...I mean really write. I've had no real interest in plots. The idea being to write vignettes that have no connection but are still essential to one another...forming a whole. I don't know that I've had much success with it.
Besides, you never want to tell people you're writing writing. Not in these parts where things haven't changed much since Flannery O'Connor's worried about her own credibility.
"In the South there are more amatuer authors than there are rivers and streams. In almost every hamlet you'll find at least one lady writing Epics in Negro dialect and probably two or three old gentlemen who have impossible historical novels on the way. The woods are full of...writers, and it is the horror of every serious Southern writer that he will become one of them."
