Pot Kettle Black Horror Writer Horrors!

The pot calls the kettle black!

We actually don’t understand that cliche actually means! If we’d ever seen a talking pot and a talking kettle, perhaps then we might grant it some credence!

Correction! If we’d ever seen a talking pot and a talking kettle – having not just consumed a full bottle of Jack Daniels! – perhaps then we might grant it some credence!

Anyway, we really do hate seeing a catfight between two best-selling authors.

Let us resolve the issue for you, dear scribes.

You’re both goddamn awful f*cking “writers” !!

OK, happy?

King not a fan of Twilight author

Horror writer Stephen King has served up a fright for Twilight author Stephenie Meyers, insisting she “can’t write worth a darn”. Skip related content

King, the writer of classics like Carrie and Misery, has gone public with his critique of in-vogue Utah-based novelist Meyers in the upcoming issue of USA Weekend magazine.

He starts by complimenting JK Rowling on her Harry Potter books, and then slates Meyer.

He says, “Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people… The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.

“It’s very clear that she’s writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It’s exciting and it’s thrilling and it’s not particularly threatening because it’s not overtly sexual.

“A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that’s a shorthand for all the feelings that they’re not ready to deal with yet.”
