BEHOLD! The PERILOUS, HURTY DANGERS of Writing a Novel!

If ever there was ample evidence that writing a book is a TERRIBLE idea, Mary Robinette Kowal provides it in this understated post from her journal:

Debut Author Lessons: Surviving on Tour

Dehydration! Starvation! Sleep-deprivation! Exposure, social overload and a lack of suitable utensils!!

Ms. Kowal is a lovely woman, very kind and generous, but I think where she fails is in striking the proper tone of hysterical awe and apoplectic admonition. This is madness people! What sane and right-thinking individual would put themselves through such torture?!

(More on that later)

Anyway – we hope Ms. Kowal does well and that she can wisely abandon this career of horror and woe and never need face eating yogurt with a substandard spork again.

Until next time, my pretties. Be well. Stay warm. And whatever you do,

DON’T WRITE

p.s. Stay tuned for a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT in the next week or two. Big, I say. As in Very Large. Gimongous. Hugemantic, even!
