Kristen Tsetsi's blog
Fellow author RJ Keller and I created, several years ago, a writers' comic relief YouTube series called "Inside the Writers' Studio."
We usually focus our episodes on the humorous aspects of some of the frustrations of writers (while also, at times, making fun of writers, as in our episode titled "Writer Stereotypes"), but after reading an interview with Sue Grafton in which she refers to self-publishing as "lazy," I guess you could say we set aside the "funny" and responded seriously to this misperception.
I wrote this last week after sending my friend, whose husband is in Afghanistan, an email asking only, 'How are you?' After seeing the reactions to this blog (it was shared on one or two military-related Facebook pages), I thought I would share it here, too. It seems many people are guilty of feeling this way, and people on both sides - those with loved ones deployed, and those who have friends with loved ones deployed - are able to relate to it.
