"There is this thing currently going around tumblr," explains Nitsuh Abebe of the a grammar blog, "about why dating a writer is good". While he thinks it is nice that the list is going around -- he does, after all, like writers and thinks they should get more dates -- as a writer who has dated writers he felt the need to offer some correctives to this list.
