Sometimes I feel like Shakespeare's sister. Have you heard that theory ? That: what if he had one, equally genius ? Wouldn't've had the same opportunities, or been as successful--b/c of her gender.
actually is a real-life example: Mozart's sister, Nannerl, also played
piano--but they didn't promote as much, married her off fairly young...
So, _me_: I feel like J.K. Rowling's hillbilly cousin
(or something). That, you know: I'm pretty proud of my work
lately...think it would make a good movie--but: it's slightly hard to
claw your way into people's literary hearts.
You know: J.K.
Rowling herself did a little experiment--with Cuckoo's Calling, under a
fake name...and, sure enough: flew below the radar--until it was
revealed: she wrote it.
