Don’t Even Ask: Authors’ Least Favorite Questions
Q: What’s your least favorite question to get as a writer?
Jeph Jacques: What are the advantages of publishing online versus a traditional publisher?
Joni Rodgers: Anything that starts with, “Since you don’t really have a job, could you… ?”
Meg Medina: Where do you get your ideas? Also, do I have “permission” to write your story.
Ayize Jama-Everett: Where do you get your ideas?
Nisi Shawl: “Where do you get your ideas from?” I mean, come on, where don’t I get them from? That’s why I’m a writer, dude.
Charlie Jane Anders: Would you like a bottle of single-malt scotch?
Alyssa Cole: “I am scared to write POC; how do I do it?” (Seriously. Don’t ask me this.)
TL;DR: Probably don’t ask authors where they get their ideas from.
