Michael N. Marcus discusses writing, editing, publishing and sometimes other things. He often draws attention to inept publishers and writers. It's his duty and his compulsion. It's important and often funny. If you present work to the public, you must be able to withstand criticism. If your feelings get hurt easily, keep your work private. When you seek praise, you risk derision. In publishing, either produce pro-quality work by yourself or get help from qualified professionals.
