I have my first real person job interview on Monday and I’m freaking out a little
I used to work for a woman who had been an agent… And I was asking her why there weren’t more women in general who were writers. And she said, “Well, I can tell you one thing which is that when I told men that their writing wasn’t good enough they would go out and prove me wrong. They would say, ‘Oh, I’ll show you.’ And when I told women their writing wasn’t good enough they’d believe me.”
My opinion is that there is one in a thousand people who thinks that and 999 people know better. It’s not even worth addressing. One person can think the president is a lizard, but do you engage that person? I don’t think it’s worth it.
