    O dear lord… I know both of these people. In fact I know them and their clones. I think this was a dinner conversation last week. *headdesk* indeed.

    I love this. In the very beginning I may have thought the same way and been naïve, but while working on my novel I have researched and read everything I can and have learned so much. It’s great to see this put so bluntly!

    Loved it! I’m not a writer but I do like to read. I have a lot of respect for authors, because I find the profession rather daunting and prestigious. I think it’s an accomplishment just to finish writing a book, even if it never get’s published. I may not like every book I read, but I certainly admire the work it took to produce it. 🙂
