READ THE FOURTH DUDE…
Say that outloud.
Do it again. This time?
Pretend that you’re Sir. Alec Guinness. Sound ghostlike and whispy.
Sound familiar yet?
For those of you who get it, thank you.
For those of you who don’t?
I don’t have anything to say to you.
Do your homework.
Do the work.
There are some things in our culture everyone needs to know and if you do not know this, it’s not my problem.
I’m not here to EDUATE YOU IN THE WAYS OF THE FORCE
That’s not my job.
You do the work.
It’s getting closer. I’ve made some edits, it’s getting smoothed out - the rough patches and such. Time for readers. I had some last time I thought that I had a draft like this one?
Only that draft? That one had too much artifice. It had a lot of construction, not a lot of play. It had a lot of meaning and story but not a lot of whimsy.
Worst of all?
I wasn’t fussy for how it sounded when I read it aloud.
I can’t really say what was wrong about it other than it was just wrong.
Putting it together felt like welding a pencil sharpener to a duck.
Now though, I see how I have so much material. I have enough for almost ten books.
Nine books are almost ten.
If I know anything at all, it’s best to start a nine part series on book four. After that? Release books five and six. Make it look like that’s all the story you have.
Go back and release the first three books, wait a decade then release the last three.
That’s the production schedule for “The Book of Wrong Answers Series”.
Here’s a list of their titles:
The Book of Wrong Answers: Volume IV - A Strange Cope
The Book of Wrong Answers: Volume V - The Chaos Trikes Hack
The Book of Wrong Answers: Volume VI - The Concern of the Stink-Eye
The Book of Wrong Answers: Volume I - The Oozing Blemish

The Book of Wrong Answers: Volume VII - The Awakened Ruckus
The Book of Wrong Answers: Volume VIII - The Fast Pass-By

It’s a big promise to make.
Let’s see what happens.
