Like any book-lover/author-fawner/hack-writer, I honestly enjoy the sessions at writers festivals. Whether you accidentally stumbled into a great discussion on your quest to escape torrential rain, or lined up for many precious minutes for a chance to catch a glimpse of your favourite author, it’s almost always a rewarding experience.
Which is why it really grinds my gears when people ask ignorant, insensitive and just plain silly questions.
“So, Ms Multi-lingual author, I learned a new language, and would like you to know that, and I don’t really have a question but if I add an upward inflection at the end will that suffice?”
