Kill your grandmother?
At Buzz, Balls and Hype, M.J. Rose asks: “What won't you do to be a successful writer? I'd love to hear stories of authors who decided not to do something to sell their books. Please write me at email@example.com. Anonymous responses accepted.” I think I would have killed my grandmother to be a successful writer, and my father, but I would have stopped short at my mother and my siblings.
