Down and Out

“I’ve never for a second regretted pulling away from being a Professional Music Critic almost immediately after feeling burned/burned out. There were folks willing to support my writing –and they were and are still probably great, it’s not you it’s me etc. — but I can just so clearly see where that path could have gone, and it scares me. A few folks in the intervening years have suggested that what I’m describing here as ‘pulling away’ is just me rationalizing cowardice, that my writing was much better than I remember. And a few folks in the intervening years have helped me understand how much worse it was or could have been than I even remember, and how much better I could/can be.”

– Dave Moore, Down and out in early-30s music criticism
