I have a raging headache this morning and am waiting for the A/C repairman to get here. The headache isn’t because of the A/C. No, it is because of the beating of my head against the wall the last few days as I’ve read — and all too often responded — to posts at According to Hoyt. No, I don’t disagree with what Sarah has written. Far from it. It has been the whacking of trolls and the trying to understand why others continue to spout the party line without actually trying to understand what the rest of us are saying or why. The culmination came this morning when someone actually said that, as fiction writers, we need to let the rest of the world know what we do because they don’t understand. This is an outcropping of a dust up over whether or not fiction writers do any research. Yes, that sound you hear is my head exploding.
Any way, go over the According to Hoyt and check out the following posts:
I’ll be back tomorrow with a regular post.
