Block that writer, right away.

They say the purpose of a writer in this world is to keep civilization from destroying each other. That may be true but for a writer surviving in this little world is as difficult as swimming peacefully in a popular holiday swimming pool.

"So you are writing a book?" she asked, nice way to start a conversation.
"Oh yes, my first ambitious novel," I beamed, "After writing so many short stories, I decided to go for the big novel."
"Nice. You know I also plan to write a book, but when I retire and have more time."

Crash and burn. Straight face smiley. :|

"Wow you write books also?" he said.
"I am writing only one book," I clarified.
"Nice, my life is fairly easy, I go home and sleep, wake up and come to office." he informed.

Not a thing you should be proud of.

The best one yet was very recently.

She, "What is your book name?"
I told her the working title of my book.
"Yes," I simply replied.
"Wow, is that book published anywhere?" she asked.
For 20 secs I was shocked. Wasn't it published but I took the higher road.
"If the book was published anywhere, would I be writing it?" I asked simply.

Writing a book is not as easy is it. You have writers block, creativity block, idiots blocking your way and your characters killing each other.
