My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wanted to be a painter but had no technique, so I tried conceptual art instead. Stifled by irony deficiency, I gave that up and went to law school, with plans to prosecute dictators. But the tyrants started toppling under their own weight. I set my sights on a more realistic goal and joined a rock band. When the hypochondriac singer was airlifted to Germany following a fall in Sicily, the dream was in tatters. I sheepishly accepted a law job. Then I read George Orwell's raw early work, which made me think there might be hope for me as a writer. But the lack of progress almost destroyed me. That is until somebody told me that all writers are bloggers now. I set up a page and went to foreign lands, posting pseudo-journalistic stories for a non-existent readership. Along the way I decided I wanted to write books about Eastern Bloc history. With half finished manuscripts scattered around my room, it seemed that discipline was the key. So I enrolled in an esoteric master's program, where I am now. The only thing standing between me and existential oblivion is a part-time job writing contracts. I have been described as "occasionally delusional, but never apathetic".
I’m really good at
