When you become known as a writer, especially one that bases their works on the otherwise mundane, everyone who crosses your path tends to fall into three basic groups.
Those with few brains or a high opinion of themselves, although most people with one also enjoy the other, they tend to want to tell you all about themselves and their boring lives.
The smarter ones, they tend to clam up, out of the fear that anything they do say or share will end up on paper.
The third group? They’re the ones who do end up whole on the page.
