Reality Show for Writers
I'm thinking there should be one. It would be riveting. We could watch people staring at keyboards. We could watch people swearing at keyboards. We could watch people surfing the net so they don't have to write. Things could get lively. We could see people sitting in bars, nursing a drink and wondering aloud if they'll ever get published. We could show the harrowing experience of receiving rejection letters. We could fall in love with the nerdy IT guy who writes science fiction and the young librarian who's written a fantastic YA novel about werewolves, or is it vampires? We could boo and hiss at the arrogant English major who writes literary fiction and looks down his nose at the other contestants. The possibilities are endless.
