Why Isn't This Book Going to Write Itself?

[ This was from Twitter a few days ago, and I decided I wanted to rescue it before it disappeared into the Twitter-abyss forever. ]

rowyn: Book, I've been writing you for a couple of months now, and I think it's time I stopped being the one doing all the work here.
rowyn: I want you to start writing yourself.
rowyn: I mean, I don't expect you to finish yourself -- I'm still here for you, book. But you could carry some of the load. Write the next scene.
rowyn: I don't think that's too much to ask. I'm sure you can do it. Thanks.
the_gneech: Book: "I'm in the middle of something. Get me a beer?"
rowyn: Dammit, Book! I am not your servant! You -- you need to --

...

*gets Book another beer*
the_gneech: *nods sympathetically* My comics are the same way.
rowyn: I understand, being inanimate objects and all, they've got limitations. But do we have to do EVERYTHING for them?
