How To Deprive Yourself Of Great Writing

Does an Author Have to Live It to Write It?

This really shocked the hell out of me:

First, my own biases. I rarely read books written by men, regardless of genre designation.

And:

I suppose that is how men feel about female authors.

Of course, I had to leave a Comment.

What’s next?

Writers can’t do books about cats because what does a human know about a feline point of view?

Writers can’t do speculative fiction because no one has a time machine to experience the future?

Writers can’t do historical novels because we can’t really understand those times?

I’ll leave it at that.

If I get impassioned, I’ll turn insulting.
