📑 Pluralistic: 13 Aug 2020 – My Origin Story

Bookmarked Pluralistic: 13 Aug 2020 by Cory Doctorow

When people ask me how I became an sf writer in the hopes of following in my footsteps, I’ve got bad news for them: I became an sf writer thanks to an utterly unique set of extremely beneficial circumstances that have never been replicated, and more’s the pity.

In light of his induction into the hall of fame, Cory Doctorow reflects upon his origin story. It makes me think that every origin story is unique. What stood out was that although Doctorow had support from a number of people his development involved keeping on going.

    Thanks for sharing this Aaron, there are not many examples of successful people acknowledging the help they had on the way to that success. This brings some well needed reality to the idea of a meritocracy. Mr Doctorow does this beautifully.
