The life of an independent author is one of anguished screams, loneliness and being shunned by the opposite sex. A writer is a creature who lives mostly in the fantasies dreamed up to avoid dealing with the crippling depression of choosing the worst career in the history of mankind. Also tequila. Who can you turn to in times of strife, when the creative juices have congealed into a foul-smelling blob of emptiness, when your story has lost the plot or when you need feedback about just how terrible your ideas are? Who else?
