Poor babies …

… How Writers Are Getting Back to Work | Literary Hub. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Maybe you should try to figure out how you got it all so wrong. Writers are supposed to have more than just a clue to that. Maybe you're out of touch.
Or write on deadline. Like the prospect of hanging, deadlines wonderfully focus the mind.
