Did you hear the one about the Finnish writer who sold a debut novel with only 24 pages of it written? Yeah, I wish it were a joke too, and not of the “cosmic-laugh-in-your-face” variety either…
What’s most telling, though, are some of the comments left to the posting by other frustrated wordsmiths under the article. Which means the whole “right place, right time” theory of how literature is produced is not only alive and well, but pissing off a whole host of other people too…

As an aside, a happy birthday to the Lovely and Talented Susan. Without her, much of this would not be possible.
So apparently the newest trend in writing is to have the accompanying video game released in concert with the book.
Looks like it’s time for me to get my copy of WRITING FLASH GAMES FOR DUMMIES out, and see if I can do something that’s neither cheesy or a rip-off of Sid Meier’s work…
In honor of the day, and keeping in line with how nautical tunes are quoted here:
Just like a sailor heading into the seas
There’s a gale blowing in my face
The high winds scare me but I need the breeze
And I can’t head for any other place
Life would seem so easy on the other tack
But even a hurricane won’t turn me back
You might be an island
On the distant horizon
But the little I see
Looks like heaven to me
I don’t care if the ocean gets rough
Just a little is enough
-Pete Townshend, “A Little is Enough”
Happy Anniversary, Susan!
