I'm a writer. I live with a comedian. Our friends are cartoonists, actors, authors, filmmakers, and other professional misfits. As a universally misunderstood lot, artists tend to hate talking to people. Whether you're in the industry or a layperson, our best friend, family member, or colleague, we don't want to talk to you.
It's not because of rampant introversion or elitism in creative people. It's because you're not good at talking to us.
