Sometimes, I don’t feel right calling myself a writer. I spend hours staring at my computer screen, watching television, flipping through various tabs, fucking around on Twitter, stretching my legs, getting a bottle of water, staring into the refrigerator, messing with my hair, refreshing my e-mail, staring at my phone wondering if it will ring.
