I LOVE Jackson Pearce. She's a hoot and spot on with this video.
I have heard about half these comments. More recently the one about someone having an idea, that I should write it, split the profits 70/30, with them getting 70% because I so would never have come up with a good idea of my own.
Sorry. Didn't mean to get overly snarky here. Just had someone tell me they weren't all that thrilled with MY book, so maybe I should use one of THEIR ideas. She was sure it would be bigger than JK Rowling or Stephanie Meyer's books. Maybe it would. But I had to suggest that SHE write it. I have way too many projects of my own in the works, regardless of how good they might actually be.
Gotta love people and their ideas. :)
