Probably this shouldn't crack me up quite as much as it does

From a NY Times article:

"In 1925 Evelyn Waugh burned his unpublished first novel, “The Temple at Thatch,” and attempted to drown himself in the sea after a friend gave it a bad review. (Stung by jellyfish, Waugh soon returned to shore.)"

It's like - "oh wait, maybe I wasn't planning on being quite that MUCH of a drama queen.  And also ouch."
