Writing Is Like Sex Because…

Raych Krueger

Staff Writer

Raych has so many kids (like, two, but they’re super young, which makes it seem like there are more of them) and this really cuts into her reading time. She’s using her degrees in Early Childhood Education and English Literature to teach the toddler to read to the baby so she can get back to her trashy Victorian sensation novel, or whatever. She’s also teaching her kids to travel and eat broadly, mostly through example (Do As I Do is super important, you guys), and hasn’t gone a year without hopping on a plane since she was a teenager. She recently moved from the Canadian coast to the Canadian prairies, where it gets hella cold, and if not for the internet, she’d surely be dead. Blog: Books I Done Read Twitter: @raychraych

Writers are, I guess, good at similes? Writers on Twitter in particular are particularly good at the ‘writing is like sex’ simile.

Not everyone can walk and chew gum at the same time.

It’s only lucrative if you’re extremely good or extremely lucky.

I’ve already read the draft of your novel, sir at the bar.

You can’t just put them any old where.

Ok that’s cheating but also that’s pretty apt.
