|Back Deck, Mailer House|
Time gets away. There’s so much to do, conversations to have, quirky Provincetown streets and galleries to stroll, writing to be done. SO much writing to be done! You’re here, you’re 100% here, you can go to the Mailer House and sit in chairs that Mailer sat in and BE in the space that housed the Uncontainable, the Mailer Life Force. You exchange work with fellow attendees, discuss phrases, words, sentences, you exult about favorite writers, favorite books, you jot down names and titles that others love, you listen to Colum McCann like you’re listening to Miles Davis or Thelonius Monk or Frank McCourt, you cannot NOT listen, you’re rapt, mesmerized, awed, you absorb every word, every Irish-brogued pronunciation, you suddenly (or maybe gradually, but eventually) realize embrace admit the most important thing, the thing you’ve been avoiding, the thing that has terrified you and paralyzed you and daunted you and taunted you – you declare yourself a Writer.
