Mamas, don't let your kids grow up to be authors

I'm still grading, but while I work, why don't you all take a look at the Gawker.com "Unsolicited" column, which is written by an anonymous editor who has some entertainingly bitchy advice for all you wannabe authors out there who don't treat yer editors right:

I read this, and in a fit of insecurity immediately forwarded it to my editor. Apparently it reminded her of someone else, so I felt relieved. At least she replies to my emails.

Best,

DM
