Yes, you read that right, I do hate you, 99.9% of you.
You are so damned competitive that not once will you ever willingly give help to another author unless there’s something in it for you.
So many times I’ve asked for help and seldom received it and y0u sit there with a smug grin on your horsey face and think you’re better than me. Well you know what? When I’m rich and famous my memory will be awesomely accurate and I’ll remember these days and will have great pleasure in sitting on the Jimmy Kimmel show and yelling “FUCK YOU.”
Don’t y0u dare ask me for help, don’t you dare.
PS – JL Stratton and Brian Bigelow, this does not apply to you guys. You’re awesome.
I fail to see why authors have to be so obstructive when faced with another author asking for help or advice. It’s not as if there’s only room for a certain number of books ‘out there.’ It’s not just me either, I’ve spoken with quite a few other authors who have experienced this same void of help when they’ve been struggling.
I’m far too long in the tooth to be patient about this now so I’m going to do what I always do; play the same game as everyone else but do it ten times better. Any author apart from the two wonderful guys mentioned above who dares ask me for help, will just get the single finger.
