I’m a Writer

You know how I don’t exactly like it when I have to explain to people what I do?

Well, this quote from How Nick Kokonas Is Shaking Up Fine Dining in Fast Company Magazine contains the best answer I’ve heard yet:

“When people ask me what I do for a living at a cocktail party and I really don’t feel like explaining it, I tell them I’m a writer. They ask me what I write and I say, ‘About 200 emails a day.’ ”


I could say: “About 200 lines of code a day”, “About 5 emails a day”, “About 2 blog posts a week”, or “About 3 Tweets a day”
