Yes. So many of these are true.

If I had to add one, it would be: “Oh, you’re a writer? I wrote eighty-three books and self-published them. How many have you published?”


Let me be straight with you… If you’re not a writer, your safest bet is to not say anything about writing to a writer. If you are a writer, there’s no hope really… We all know we’re going to accidentally bruise each other’s egos, whatever we say! However, these are some absolute gems of what NOT to say to a writer.
