And the writers have always been a quirky bunch...
She was born Lynn, but has been calling herself Muriel for the past two years, its sounds like a more authentic writer's name. For the past year she's been in a two room apartment in New York City, where she heard all the writers moved. Thing is, she hasn't really been the most happy there. Everyone was just so weary of trying to be writers, she felt suffocated and dragged down into the latenight coffee shop open mic funerals for used-to-be, or worse, wanted-to-be writers. So she just recently decided to move back to Iowa. Less competition there. She might even change her name back to Lynn.
But see that light in her eyes? She's happy with her choice.
Things are looking up.
