Low Expectations

Every time I tell someone I got a book published they say, "Oh, like a local indie press?" When I tell them it's being made into a film they say, "Oh, like a local indie film?" When I tell them John Malkovich is in it they say, "Oh, like a local indie actor who looks like John Malkovich?"

  3. That's hilarious. I get the opposite reaction from people. I've published one short story, from which I've made a couple bucks. When I tell people I'm a writer and I'm published, immediately it jumps to: "Can you loan me some money?" "Can you have your agent publish my book?" "I have a best seller idea. If you write it for me, I will give you 15% of the profit..."

  4. You need to hang out with better people ;)

    I was excited about Nicholas Hoult, or rather, the indie actor that looks like Nicholas Hoult.
