I once read a funny quote from Terry Pratchett about authors (maybe fantasy authors specifically?) and their appearance, which I'm trying to find again. It was something like:
Most authors look very serious and conservative, so I crack jokes and wear a funny hat instead.
Heavily paraphrased, and I don't know if any of these particular words actually appeared. If I recall correctly, he listed three attributes of authors which made them sound dull and boring, and then contrasted himself with the rest by applying the opposites of those three attributes to himself.
After a lot of internet searching, I've failed to find this quote. Does anyone else have better Google-fu than me or remember the quote more precisely?
