Doris Lessing said winning the Nobel Prize has been a "bloody disaster" because of the increased media attention, according to the BBC. The author has said she "would probably now be giving up writing novels altogether."There is so much wrong with this, and on so many levels. First, she's whining (yes, whining) about winning the Nobel Prize. People like this make me want to find a really heavy book (something written by Stephen King or Leon Uris, something that's at least 900 pages long) and aim my throw to land right between their eyes. You're whining about winning the Nobel Prize! I don't care that she's 88 years old, nobody can bitch about winning the Nobel Prize and not sound like a bloody moron.
"All I do is give interviews and spend time being photographed," Lessing said, adding she "also recalled that, in the 1960s, she had been informed that the Nobel Academy's judges did not like her and she would never win."
Ugh, and so people want to interview you and take your picture? Here's a radical thought - say no! No, I'm not giving interviews. No, I'm staying home and writing. No, no, no. Hell, it worked for J.D. Salinger, it can work for you too!
