Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Majorca Flats -- 109

Lawyers
Author seems like the right word to me!” said Jason, It seems like something I could never do. Everybody at school and Oxford was talking about the great novel they were going to write, and I knew I couldn't do that.”
Well, you never know! But what will you do?”
My parents wanted me to do law. But I found it so boring, and so immoral — making the wrong side appear right. And then … I met Brent. And everything else became unimportant, really. He was my … he was everything … and I just, well, I stopped thinking about my career and what I would do when I'd finished university.” Jason didn't want to mention the money he would get when he turned twenty-five, so much money it seemed disgusting and immoral. Especially now, especially after the way Brent had died.
These things have a way of sorting themselves out. Who would've thought that I would make a living — a good living — from writing? Though I admit, it is a job. I don't get much fun out of it.”
