A little pre-Christmas humor

by Michael

This video, by David Kazzie of The Corner blog, while a little on the long side, had my colleagues and me laughing. For all of you hard-working, already-published or aspiring writers out there, it can be difficult when you encounter someone who knows nothing about books or publishing but decides to write a book anyway. And this is how you'll want to react--if you're a bit crass and don't mind a few four-letter words. (Ok, so this is what I might say!) And with so many people mentally checked out of work, you should have a few minutes of fun, too.

Enjoy!

  5. I love this. All it needs is a line that says: "If I run into any problems, I'll just make it a YA book, because those are easier to write."

  9. I think it is nice that all of you agents don't squash the dreams of the 99% with all of the animosity you obviously carry around. "The peasants are revolting" "You said it they stink on ice!"
