Writers and Other Delusional People

I had a chat with a fellow at my writing workshop this weekend who paid an “editor” to read his manuscript. I had to tell him he had wasted his money. I took no pleasure in delivering the news.

Then today I came across this dead-on commentary from Steven York on writer scams and other ways we fool ourselves in this industry. I wish every beginning writer could read this.

    Ouch. But so true. I think this deserves to be spread around a bit more.
