From the "WTF?" Files

I just remembered--I had a dream last night that my dream agent called me up and offered representation...on the condition that I both lengthen my novel, and remove exactly 1300 instances of the word "the."

Of course I said yes.

If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
