Bitch on the Blog

And your point is …?

I spend most my time reading (not for pleasure or leisure, necessarily).

Just  read the most awful ever. It’s awful. It’s so awful I wish I weren’t born. No, I’ll take that back since, if I weren’t born, the Angel wouldn’t be around either. If only to read crap.

There is prose. And there is shite. And when the shit hits my fan I am crest fallen. How do writers live with themselves? How do newspaper editors live with themselves paying by the word? At length?

Whatever. I will lie down and apply a cold compress to the remaining of my eighth dead brain.

  1. There are far too many books that should never have been published. I reckon about half the books I read are well-written and worth reading. The rest are so sloppy, long-winded or boring, I wonder who on earth decided to foist them on the general public.

  2. I ask myself the same sort of question about one Charles Dickens’ editor only to realise that he was that person and he apparently paid himself by the word thus subjecting us to the canard that great English is full of unnecessary adjectives, among other sins. .
    If you want really attrocious writing read The Da Vinci Code….. ot The Satanic Verses…….horrifying.

  3. Yes, reading something like that when you have to rather than when you like to can be painful. I am grateful that I do not have to do it anymore.
