    If you can't spot the guy - you are the guy!

    Originally put together as "that guy in your MFA", converted to "that guy in your writers' group", but possibly "that guy on your writers' site"?

    My favourites? I'm torn between:

    You "had some trouble" with my stream-of-consciousness novel? Let me guess... you've never read Ulysses.​

    and

    I just need to find an agent and an editor who understand that any revision to my work will ruin its artistic integrity.​

    "Oh this? Just my custom engraved and leather-bound Moleskin notebook. For ideas, whenever inspiration strikes." is my favorite.

    'This is just my old paperback copy of Gravity's Rainbow. Notice how worn it is? I bring it everywhere with me.'

    Yeah - I remember that guy back in uni. Funnily enough, it actually was a copy of Gravity's Rainbow, and he'd take it out every time we went to a café or a pub or something and put it on his table but would never read a word of it.

    "Hold up. Did I hear you correctly? You guys post parts of your WIP's here, discuss them, critique them, and then... actually... sometimes revise them? Oh, no. No, no, no, no. What fresh hell is this? Delete my account now. NOW!! Where's Wreybies? DELETE MY ACCOUNT NOW!!!"

    It's happened. :whistle:

    I don't have to worry about being that guy 'cause I'm a gal.

    So, can I get away with all this? :D I mean, I know my food metaphors are totally on point.
