05 May 2013 – I am still working at the cafe in Redfern – which takes up most of my time. We still have not set a date for moving south – Boring.
A lot of our customers are University students, lecturers and the admin staff that head to the University of Sydney every day. A few are local writers, artists and dandy’s who frequent the cafe a few times a day.
And then there is Gus, a smug professional writer who comes in quite regularly to bitch and moan and complain about how busy he is, how broke he is, how hard it is to be a writer, and so on. He so clearly loves the work, and would never give the writing up even if it financially pressures his wife and children into making obvious sacrifices. I wonder why he wont shut about about his great life that everyone wants.
I wonder if he is trying to put other people off becoming a writer so he wont have any competition? Hmm… I will test my theory over the week.
