I’ve got a long road trip and 10 days of no exercise allowed after a spot of surgery (it’s not a tumor!).
So I need things to read. You know, book-like substances, printed bits of dead trees.
And I want a honking pile of them.
Therefore, good people, my plea is simple. Sock it to me:
- Nominate a popular book that’s actually horrible and I’ll bleed red all over the first page
- Tell me your Favorite Book of All Time so I have something delicious to chew for hours
- Hit me up on Twitter, gmail or the comment sections if you want to collaborate on an insanely creative and secret project
- Give me a movie or music video you want dissected and taken apart, to see how it works like magic or smashes into the hard, heartless rock named Fail
- If you’re not a nancypants who’ll wind up in therapy, ship me the first page of your WIP and I may ink it up and whip it back, because EDITING IS CRAZY FUN
Also: You’re right, that headline riffs on a Don Henley song. Here it is, live.
