I’m currently writing a murder story, so I hope to goodness no one identifies with it!!
A couple of years ago I wrote for a US magazine, a satirical piece about homelessness, and the reaction of a middle class woman to some ‘bums’ she saw down town. (I live in Australia) I received a beautiful email from a guy who’d been homeless for a number of years before finally getting his life together again. He thanked me for my ‘insight’ and for understanding his plight. Made my day. Actually, it made my year.
