A couple of people have e-mailed to ask me if I can identify the victim of or otherwise comment on Dr. Sue's latest snitfest.
What I can tell you:
1. I haven't belonged to a formal online writing community for years, so I rather doubt it's me.
2. If I knew who it was, I still wouldn't identify her. Stuff like this should be said to the victim's face, not behind her back.
3. It's an excellent warning for anyone considering joining an online writers' group. This could be you they're talking about.
4. Unkindness, childishness, envy, contempt and character assassinations are pretty much business as usual in any entertainment industry. The more successful you are, the more you'll encounter them. Welcome to the wonderful world of publishing.
