Another meme

The second meme in three days, wow. This one's from Rosina Lippi, and you can read the rules here. You have to list five reasons the best writers come from, well, somewhere. So, here we go:

Five reasons why the best writers come from Camelot:

  1. A normal day consists of quests, tournaments, battling monsters, evil knights, evil bewitched knights, evil illegitimate sons, evil half-sisters… No lack of inspiration, in other words.
  2. The Round Table is an excellent writing desk. You can lay all your research books and loose notes on it and there’s still room for the teapot, your supply of chocolate and the cat. No more rummaging through drawers for the outline of chapter eight.
  3. We’re famous for our swords and heroic deeds. They say the pen is mightier than the sword, so logically, our books must be legendary.
  4. There are 150 of us around the Round Table, all armed and dangerous. Nobody dares mess with us or insult our books.
  5. Merlin can deal with evil publishers.
