Actually, I've often been struck by the similarities between writing and
programming. The software development cycle bears a striking resemblence to
the writing process. Also, the personalities and interests of writers and
programmers overlap quite a bit. Science fiction, for example, is frequently
common ground.

Even so, I have to agree that a writer managed by a programmer (or any
nonwriter) is in for hard times.
