It’s not gonna make you any money
It’s not like a real job
I don’t really read, sorry.
What do you write? Is it like
Fifty Shades of Grey? Sorry to disturb you.
Not busy, are you?
You’re always on your phone or laptop or writing something down.
How many books have you written? (And whatever your answer is will always be disappointing).
Is it like — or like —
I’ve always wanted to write a book.
You must be so smart.
I think I’m gonna write a book.
What does this word mean?
Why don’t you go outside, get some fresh air?
What have you done today? (And writing is a not a good enough answer).
I really liked your book/post (but they didn’t really know anything about it).
I’ll buy your books (and they just don’t, they never do).
The unenthusiastic “oh” when you say you’re a writer.
Why won’t you come out with us?
I know a great story you can write!
Why don’t you do this? Why don’t you do that?
It’s a bit long…
I don’t get it…
You should really get out more.
It’s not a realistic dream.
