"a real person getting awards and book deals" - no, that kind of thing doesn't happen, does it? It's unlikely that the public's appetite for 'reality' shows could overspill, via blogging, into literature. And unthinkable that a talented writer could be overlooked until some prurient momentary press furore gives them an in to the world of publishing. No, it's much simpler to believe that 'writers' are different to you and me, and that they have time to play fame-seeking games on the net, where only exposure and ignominy inevitably await them.... You are a bit of a chump, aren't you?
