It's amazing what crap writing will produce. This is not a description of my blog but rather a question at Quora: "How would you deal with a writer friend who isn't a good writer?" Sonnet Fitzgerald offers good advice but I am probably too tactless to use it properly:
I have chosen to make a point to compliment them on the amount of effort I know writing a book takes. "Wow, it must have taken you a ton of work to get that put together!" "I didn't know you were a writer, so few people actually have the stamina to see a book through to this stage." "You wrote this while working 60 hours a week? That's amazing!"---
It's not lying, it's just... deflecting.
