This is the problem as I see it, Peter. You seem to be under the misconception that we value your opinion. I assure you we do not.
How's that for aesthetics?

This is a writers' group for god's sake. Deal with the issue of aesthetics. Or this is just another online faux-author's forum?

Is James Joyce going to be at this book festival? I had better bring my copy of “Finnegan’s Wake” for him to autograph.

 

Thanks for the heads up!

 

Warm regards

Ok everyone. I am WRONG (CAPS key dude) for demanding some aesthetics in the words we chose in a WRITERS group? AWESOME is lazy. It's banal and commonplace and bullshit because it's meaningless because it's banal and commonplace. Hello? I'm spending time time on the Proteus chapter (3) of Ulysses. That's hard word work because it's six layers deep and not awesome but complex and human and humane. If we are a writers group we don't rest on words formerly indicating a superlative now used billions of times in the vernacular so that the BEST is now EVERYTHING. So think. What the hell does awesome mean?

There is something AWESOME about your e-mail. It left me speechless, thank God that didn’t prevent me from typing a response, and hopefully it’s as awesomely pointless as yours.

 

By the way I was thinking of attending this AWESOME book festival myself. Anybody else going?

Hello All,    

There is a awesome book festival in Washington DC Sept 21-22 that I am attending.   I have attached a link below in case anyone else is interested in going.  Please let me know you decide to make it up!  I would offer to car pool but I am flying in directly from Chicago.

The group I am working with has been given an opportunity to interview a number of presenting authors.  We can't possibly interview them all so I thought it would be helpful to get some input from the group about which authors you like the most and why. 

If you have any suggestions please email me at supermailboing @ yahoo DOT com where the dot is a period and no spaces around the @ symbol.

Thanks,
Gary
