Sally Bellerose This story was first published in Poets & Writers magazine, November/December 2000. ” . . Not if you write, and not if you have a family. Somewhere between the fourth and fifth drafts of my first novel, Dive, I began attending a writing workshop. I had just sold the book, a coming-of-age story that my editor and I saw as a crossover title—one that would reach both teen and adult readers. Not being very clever, I agreed to read aloud my first night in class. That was the format: three or four people read up to fifteen pages; everyone listened; a discussion followed.

I am mindful to step clear of succulent new growth, satisfied that soon this modest plot of land will turn into a pretty little potager garden, as it always does this time of year. In the mailbox, a rejection letter threatens to spoil the lovely day. I crumple my most disappointing literary heave-ho to date in my fist. I have just found out that the prestigious prize for which my book was a finalist, the golden ring that would have transformed me into a successful, highly paid author, has gone to someone else.

She told me this proudly while on tour promoting the book, and I tried hard not to look horrified. I appreciate that writing can be therapeutic. No doubt the letters helped her through a difficult time. But writing also detached her from the present—from being present—and shielded her from the moment. Her present was painful, mine was pleasant, but we were both prisoners of our craft. I was at first concerned, scared really, that I’d be wasting the experience of the trip if I didn’t write about it.
