The Haircut Blog
Every two weeks, like clockwork, my wife gives me a haircut. As a matter of fact, I will be getting my hairs cut this weekend. Depending on which side of a full moon the haircut takes place, there is more hair or less. Once I had a dream that I went to get my haircut in a barber shop. Sitting there were several writers whose work I admire.
Stephen King was there. We talked about The Stand. I told him that I read his book on writing and that it was an inspiration.
John Grisham was there. I told him that I really liked The Testament and told him how this novel had an impact on my life once upon a time.
Ann Lamott is there. I’m not sure why she’s there since she has dreads and she’s a lady. Most barber shops that I go to are men only. In fact, women weren’t allowed in barbershops not too long ago, just like men should never be allowed in beauty shops.
Stephen Lawhead is there. I’m not sure why he’s come all the way from England to get a haircut. We talk about the Pendragon Cycle, the King Raven series and the Endless Knot series.
There are some other writers sitting around. After a while, they look at me and say, “What have you written?”
Now some might be intimidated by such heavy hitters asking that question. Not me. I’m secure in my little musings and ramblings. I have no fear in answering them. I’m proud of what I do.
I’m a blogger.
