time-cover-franzen_customBustle, which describes itself as “A new force in media that delivers everything you want to know, see and read – right now,” has delivered a very funny and all too telling roundup of “13 of the Most Annoying Writers You’ll Ever Meet.” Courtesy of Tori Telfer, this bulletin from the wilder and woolier frontier of literary endeavor brings together 13 of the authorial types you most hope never to see staring back at you from the bathroom mirror.

“Alas, a terrible writer must fall into every struggling writer’s life, and these are 13 of the worst ones out there,” says Telfer. You may never have to fear #5, “The ‘Writer’ Who Doesn’t Write” as a competitor, or #7, “The Non-Writer Who Just Wants the Trappings of the Writing Lifestyle.” But beware #9, “The Boring Writer Who Had the Billion-Dollar Idea that You Didn’t?”

And lest you think this is just all so much flannel, look here. Or here. Or here. And above all: here.

Read. Weep. Cringe. Enjoy.
