This is likely the goofiest thing I've ever posted. But fun to write! (And need to be write better well. Editor come?)

oh hell yes, Scott. *applause*


Editor need clue as to purpose...


Thanks, y'all. As for why I need an editor: I overwrite things. Or I get stuck in repetitive sentence structures. Plus I'm still undecided if this works better if you know the spoilers or don't. In other words, I don't write much fiction and worry I'm making an ass of myself when I do.


I don't think the header was there when I read this yesterday....

A novel with a punchline?!? That's a hell of a lot of work for a shaggy-dog chuckle. Unless the payoff goes well beyond the punchline, isn't that why God gave us short stories? (cf. Asimov, "Shah Guido G.", "In Bad Taste", etc, ad nauseum, unless you like that sort of thing, as I do)
