Way to dis your readers and other writers

Two new YA writers, in an attempt to either promote their book be humorous, or both says things in a Slate article about the experience like this:

- "The timetable is crazy. Katie, having come out of an M.F.A. background where the rule was that good writing requires rumination, pain, and the slow loss of your best years, fought the craziness at first. But readers in Y.A. don't care about rumination."

- "The average length of time you get to write a Y.A. book is six months."

I think they have mistaken their experiences for everyone's experiences.

Read it for yourself here.
