There's a new post up at the Blogging Authors' blog, describing and demolishing a lot of those myths that non-writers have about writers and authors.
(Writers being the term for all of us who put words down and try to make them sparkle enough to insure our manuscript will attract readers. Authors being those lucky enough to not only get published, but who also are read and enjoyed by others. -- my definition. The older definition used to be -- we are writers/ authors are those dead white guys studied in schools in English class.)
