Never Date a Writer

Another dating tip for women from Mz Manners

They will stain your 600 count Egyptian cotton sheets with round explosions of blue and black ink.

They will sequester themselves away in your room for hours, while ignoring you, only to emerge hours later deftly deflecting your questions about the progress of the novel with, "AND NO! IT ISN'T ABOUT YOU!"

Although it TOTALLY is.....

P.S. Five years later, after he's been your ex for about five years, you'll be extremely pleased to find your name in the acknowledgment section. (This could also be a lesson in patience, and standing by your man, but who really wants that?)

    I hear the writers beome easier to live with once they actually get a book published. I think they stop staining the sheets at that point.
