Justification for my existence

Yikers. It might not be a bad idea that I do the blogging on Nancy's behalf. Here's a great article on Salon about writers, and specifically Alice Hoffman, reacting badly to critics.

Which isn't to say that Nancy's few critics don't occasionally, um, peeve me. And they might actually provoke some sort of response from me (it has nearly happened, and Nancy actually had to talk me out of it). Still, I'm confident that the extra level of emotional indirection is just enough to keep me from the sort of wretched excesses exhibited by some of the writers described in the article. Which seems like a good thing.
