Dreaming of Fame

A Quick Note

I was just thinking: If I'm ever a famous writer, and I do a reading or a book signing, and maybe somebody from the audience asks me if my characters are based on real people, I'll respond like this:

"Yes. They're all based on you."

Oh, and I intend to write lots and lots of run-on sentences, because Mrs. Jagger, one of my high school English teachers, once said that I could do whatever I wanted when I'm a famous writer.

"But until then," she'd say, "you must follow the standards of the Harbrace Handbook."
