Candace Bushnell quote #115 from Summer and the City

Why shouldnt I I demand silently. Why shouldnt I become a famous writer Like Norman Mailer. Or Philip Roth. And F. Scott Fitzgerald and Hemmingway and all those other men. Why cant I be like them I mean what is the point of becoming a writer if no one reads what youve writtenDamn Viktor Greene and The New School. Why do I have to keep proving myself all of the time Why cant I be like Lil with everyone praising and encouraging me Or Rainbow with her sense of entitlement. I bet Viktor Greene never asked Rainbow why she wanted to be a writer.Or what if-I wince-Viktor Greene is right Im not a writer after all.
