Sometimes a writer might look at her novel and think, “Wow. I did it! And it isn’t even bad.” Other times that same writer might look at that same novel and think, “Fat ants jumping on my keyboard could’ve done a better job.”
The fat ants will make more money, too.
They’ll get interviewed by Terri Gross and make a movie with George Clooney.
Get on Oprah to cry about their relationship with Grasshopper.
Be denounced by Tom Cruise. Or somebody on TV somewhere…
Correction: That same writer will look at what she has written and know that she needs to go to bed.
