Novelists, journalists, academics, screenwriters – all kinds of authors are using Ulysses for their writing. We asked some of them to share their story. In this post, Patrick Pittman explains why for him Ulysses is the perfect place to “just write”.
Which role does writing play in your professional life? What are you writing and how much?
I’m an editor, journalist, playwright, sometime fiction writer, sometime writer for hire. I freelance for various international magazines, writing everything from political briefings to longform features. I also do radio work of the sort that requires scripting. In the evenings, I’m writing the more fun kinds of things that don’t pay anything of note, but that I enjoy the most. Fiction. Love letters. Idle musings. Plans for projects that may or may not ever come to fruition.
Let’s just say, making words on the screen is most of my life, interspersed with flying all over the place to record other people’s words, and propping up bars scribbling notes.
