    I find his story fascinating, but am mystified to hear that he hates to read books and, as a result, is not aware of how quotation marks function, thinking they have to increase by one for every new sentence of dialogue.

    This is amazing. I want to bask in the horrific glory of his drafts. I don’t want to read his book, it doesn’t sound like my thing. I’d really like to flip through it and stare, though.

    Also you are wonderful, and I can tell you as a modern college student that social networking technology is a disgusting travesty, offensive to all true technology users, network operators, and social individuals.Report

    Submit the book to Amazon’s slush pile. Someone will eventually read it, and if it’s any good, amazon will publish it.

    “actually wrote like they were fighting their way out of a bar on fire”
    … that’s pretty catchy.Report
