See if you can read this BBC article without allowing your jaw to hit the floor. Looks like it's anyone's guess whether this young woman is demonstrating false modesty or true stupidity:
Born in London and educated at Cambridge, Smith, 29, released her acclaimed debut novel White Teeth in 2000.
In New York magazine she described writing novels as "quite stupid work".
"In a novel you're never wrong," she said. "Novelists aren't intellectuals, they're just intuitive, if they're lucky."
My houseguests aren't here yet, so I guess I'll sign off now and get back to my stupid work. Maybe I'll have time to polish another scene before my doorbell rings.
Don't know if I'll be blogging tomorrow, so I'll go ahead and wish everyone a safe and fun weekend. Don't do anything stupid, okay?
