How to Peel a Pommelo
First, attend a liberal arts college. Get a degree in creative writing.
Next, work shitty jobs for two years. Feel hopeless. Try therapy, fish oil, moving back home. Finally, join a writer's group. Feel inspired!
Go back to school. Get another degree in creative writing.
Spend two years listening to your teachers and classmates tell you why you're a bad writer. Graduate in the exact same circumstances you began in, except several thousand more in debt. Consider your options.
Move to Thailand.
