Yet I have no idea why I’m knee-deep into the whole thing at the moment. My only excuse is that any link I click takes me into CE territory! There’s a fucking outbreak of this thing; it’s like a bout of shingles at a geriatric home.
This is the last I’m saying on this issue. (Please don’t hold me to that, but I sweah’ I will do mah’ beri best this time!)
I’m in love with:
- Mrs. Giggles. I think she rocks big time. I agree with everything she has to say in this post. God bless her unpopular opinions.
- Gennita Low, who I’d never even heard of before this but who I’m so buying now. *g*
Cassie Edwards fans trolled the different boards, mostly telling off a bunch of people about their need for a job and to go read something else. Academics are pulled in, wandering and wondering (who’s Cassie Edwards again? Will she fund our future research?). Lawyers circled around the stage. Experts torpedoed onto the stage.
Authors and would-be writers on other boards are horrified at the SB’s blog name. "Our image! They done destroy our image!!!! They should have kept all this undercovers, like a Sekret Trial!!!!!!! Wahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!"
Chorus: Oh NOoOOoOOes!!!!! She plagiarized a Pulitzer Prize novel!!!! WTFBBQ?
The Ghost of Sinatra appears in corner of stage, stage-whispersinging: And now, the end is near....)))
Clap of thunder. It’s raining heavily. Wind. Rain. Woooooooooshhhhhh. Manuscript pages flying in tornado like pattern. Spotlight follows a lone black-footed ferret slinking by.
End result so far:
- Plagiarism is bad.
- We are all individuals.
- Cassie Edwards is a 71 year-old woman.
- Mean girls have no reason to invoke the Oracle of Google unless it’s to be mean.
- Someone ran over someone’s dog.
- Jenny Crusie taught me a lot.
- Diana Gabaldon not so much.
- The fear of making fun of CE books is on me. No more making fun of CE books, except with some kind of asterisk ***.
