Who am I?

In the past, authors were often treated like garbage.

This has changed in the meantime; today, waste is treated better. The social romanticism occasionally expressed with regard to being an author lacks any foundation in the face of a mercilessly exploitative media society. Society despises the writing guild, and the occasional brief euphoria should not disguise this.

The media companies degrade the freelance authors. What drives you as an author is only the existential survival of the next week and the next month. Nothing else.

The consciousness of who you are and what was important fades away completely behind it. An interview conducted with Wolfgang Koeppen, an important author of German post-war literature, is legendary in its shortened version: “What do you do all day long? – “I’m very busy.” – “With what?” – “I don’t know.” [Quoted from suhrkamp tb. 2450: One who writes.]
