Please Be Quiet Now

You might think that a writer who is disinclined to talk about whatever it is she's currently working on, when asked to discuss it, would simply say, "No, sorry, I'd rather not." But you would be wrong, because that route would keep the writer from dispensing a mind-bendingly pretentious non-answer.

That was one of the most pretentious things I have ever read in my life. I loved it. I would like to drop her ass into a real cave and have her find her way out, to see if she still feels it is an accurate comparison to sitting around drinking lattes and writing little stories.

In the words of the immortal Gene Simmons: "you say you're an artist? Then paint my house, bitch".
