“There is something unique about the way people talk to writers. Strangers seem very willing to offer career advice — ’self-publishing is where the money is!’ — literary advice — ’People love vampires!’ — or to oddly ask you to guess what work they’ve read in their life and if any of yours is among it. It got me thinking about what it would be like if people talked about other professions in this way…” ~ Lincoln Michel
