One thought on “Excerpts from BNC lecture

  1. Oh, puh-lease…it’s not that bad…my Great-Uncle was a writer; he did pretty well (heard of Tenida?) Look at John Grisham…you’ll be a millionaire soon (I’m prophesying as an oracular reader)…obesity…well, “weight is great” unless you plan to participate in a beauty contest…for the rest of the things…well…that’s not only for writers; everyone decent, some time or the other, goes through it…
