Never Edit Out Ferrets


More of these charming reflections of a rejected writer's life.

And how true they are.

Maybe if the individual in the cartoon wasn't thinking about herself all the time she'd actually get out into the world and have a few experiences worth writing about. Or say she has plenty to write about (after all she has survived childhood, right, Flannery?): maybe her life would be better if she just did some damn thing besides wait. If you are a failed (-ing) or undiscovered writer--who really cares?! Get out there and do something! Have sex! Climb a mountain! Write something else! Please, for the love of Pete do not indulge in these kinds of behaviors. For very long.

If the cartoon depicted a man, I bet Steve would feel pathos rather than disdain. Anyway, you miss the point intentionally, Steve, I guess so you can make your own point. Still, not good form.

Oh get over yourself, anon.

The cartoon would not be funny any more if she was climbing a mountain. I'd be ok with a cartoon of her having sex. But really Steve, cartoons are supposed to be funny, not preachy. This is what happened to South Park, and now it sux.
