What a writer's life is really like

I saw this video on M.G. Tarquini's blog who received it courtesy of Sharon Anderson Bunion. With Mindy's permission, I'm now posting it here. It's an over-the-top depiction of an editor giving a writer advice about how to write his next book.
When I saw it I couldn't stop laughing because there's an undeniable spot of reality mixed in there. Enjoy!

This really is funny!
Makes me shake in my boots though about having an editor talk to me like that. I'd slink down onto the floor. I am assuming this isn't really how an editor would help you brainstorm a story right?

Yeah. Like that. But not.

Good thing I have a great font of ideas already...

So true, so true! It's a story, about a man and a woman. And a dog. Or not. Maybe just about a dog. And the man who owns him. And his wife. Or girlfriend. Or both. Or not.

Or maybe it's a cat...

Oh, my! This is a great little skit, isn't it?! Made me laugh! I hope I never get an editor like that one to work with (like I'll ever get published -- yah)
Unable to stop giggling!!!!

I've seen this one a few times and LOVE it. I think I'll get an iPod just so I can download it and watch it over and over! Thanks.

Very funny. Guess it
doesn't get easier after
you have a contract, huh?
