I put up a post earlier today that listed six things that people should never say to authors. One, for example, was when someone invited me to an event and then said “wow, they sure airbrush those author photos, don’t they!”
This was a very popular Twitter meme a few weeks ago and a very funny one at that. And certainly some people understood what I was trying to get at and thought the post was funny. But in my attempt to be clever, I was ungenerous. And so I have deleted that post permanently.
