I'm A Brain Surgeon Now, But I Used To Be An Author

"There's a famous story about Margaret Atwood meeting a brain surgeon at a party. After some chit-chat, the surgeon announces that he plans to take up writing when he retires. ‘Really?' Atwood supposedly replied. ‘When I retire, I plan on taking up brain surgery.’ "

- From an article by Leah McLaren in The Globe And Mail on how everyone she knows these days is writing books
