Why writers don't do book covers

So my editor, obviously campaigning for editor of the year, decided to ask if I had any ideas for a cover on the next Whiplash.

Shocked, I mean, gratified by the question, I fired up one of my drawing programs to supplement my descriptions with a crude sketch.

Even the damn program rebelled, however, coughing up the above and then unceremoniously crashing, taking the computer with it.

This is why publishers don't ask writers for input - they're afraid the result will be a worldwide power blackout.
