Lint in Literature: The Forest for the Trees by Betsy Lerner

I'm reading The Forest for the Trees:  An Editor's Advice to Writers by Betsy Lerner and loving it! Since it's nonfiction, I'm just dipping into it as I have a few minutes so I'm only on page 80. So far, so good!

Today I read this passage where Lerner is discussing types of writers (this chapter is about the self promoter):

I discovered that allegations of professional misconduct had attached themselves to this writer like lint.

I love that analogy. Lint does have a way of sticking where it doesn't belong.
