April 26, 1995/November 22, 2006: How's My Driving?
Here's what I'm going to do for you.
Everyone's got a manuscript in a drawer, right? You add a page or two a year to that semi-biographical opus that you know, you just know would be destined for a place atop bestseller lists and housewives' nightstands, adorned with the seal of Oprah's Book Club, if only Random House ever called you back. Everyone has that problem, right? Well, I mean, I don't. As you can see, I write on the internet. I don't need to worry about that sort of thing.
But in the spirit of the New York Times, here's what I'll do. Through the publishing powers of this blog, I'm giving you the once-in-a-lifetime chance (let's face it) to put your manuscript on the internet. Do you know who reads the internet? It doesn't get much more charitable than this. You don't even have to pretend to be the Unabomber.
And it won't be easy. The internet has some pretty high standards and I'm not going to let just any old turgid romance through. So if you want to be considered for publication, post your manuscript by leaving a comment below and --
Yeah, never mind.
