"I've been living my life, not wasting my time reading. What do you think I am, some kind of dork?"
We've all seen the videos with the computer characters. The ones where the in-depth conversations are made humorous by the overall lack of emotion in the voices and expressions.
Well, here's one making its way around the writing community this week (I've seen it in three different blogs already), and I'm going to add to the hype because I enjoyed it that much.
It's a video I think we can all relate to.
If you've been writing for any length of time you've probably come across at least one person who's sprung a couple of these on you. Those wildly incorrect assumptions about the writing industry that makes you unsure whether they're just pulling your leg or totally serious.
And if you happen to hear something that sounds suspiciously like something you've said. . . stop. Just stop. We'll pretend like we didn't hear you say it, so long as you promise never to say it again.
