Thank you for writing this post. I've had dinner with Leonard many times at a mutual friends apartment, and never knew about his writing.
Fantastic! How great to see the creative side of someone you already knew...
Good for him. He sounds very disciplined and determined. He sounds as if he'd be very funny to talk to. Of course, having a day job helps, even as it hinders.Actually, I once heard a quote that only something like 200 people in the U.S. are able to support themselves solely from their writing.
Yes, he is a hoot to talk to. 200???? That is such a low number, I refuse to believe it! Think of all the newspapers and tv shows there are out there. Add to that, screenwriters and novelists. I assume you mean creatives, but wow - if that number is true AT ALL, that is astoundingly low!
