My God, genre writers seem to have an awful lot of time on their hands, with all that criticizing, crusading, and infighting! Where do they find the time for all that crap and still find time to write?
I swear, some genre writers must spend the majority of their time not on
actual writing, but on searching for the next racist/sexist/whatever
target. They must spend most of their time launching the latest in a
long string of genre world attacks against political incorrectness,
rather than spending that time working on their latest WiP. If that's
not the case, if these writers have so much time on their hands that
they can spend several hours a day writing and still find several hours a
day to participate in the latest genre world fracas, I must reach the
conclusion that writing isn't nearly as hard and time-consuming as some
writers would have you believe.
I know when I'm wasting time ranting, I'm not getting any drawing done. Ranting takes time away from the more important things, like working on my latest illustration assignment.
