i have now downloaded this, in the hope that it will kind of write a novel for me, maybe, without me having to do very much or get very involved. this is my new plan. i am still just working my way through the tutorial at the moment.
BEST BEHAVIOUR by Noah Cicero can now be ordered on Amazon. i think this is going to be the next thing i buy off Amazon. i also want to read WASTE by Eugene Marten, but it feels impossible to buy something off Amazon at the moment for some reason.
i was thinking in the shower this morning that a good way to make money would be to start a boy band called 'NSFW'. anyone want to start this boy band with me? feel like we would need maybe 4-7 boys total, of various different ethnicities/looks, all with extreme dancing + singing + dancing-while-singing ability.
guess most people have seen this now? i can account for about 7-8 of the views, i think.
really liked these things by Ben Brooks (kind of NSFW (as in 'don't look at them at work, one has a picture of a vagina' not 'hey, this could be used in our boy band, maybe')

i interviewed Ben Myers recently for Bookslut.
it's just gone online.
have you read Ben's novel, Richard, yet?
i would recommend it, even if you don't like/don't know anything about the band Manic Street Preachers.
i saw this trailer/featurette for Shoplifting From American Apparel (the movie) today, too. liked it a lot.
blogging seems kind if impossible. think i have run out of things to say apart from links and descriptions.
[here is the kind of thing i would type if i was still blogging:]
i think i might start a website called www.chriskillen.com
instead of a blog
it will be just a white screen.
and if you click anywhere on the white screen a voice will say, 'i'm sorry'.
and if you hold down the left mouse button and select the whole screen it will uncover one of the 1000+ abandoned drafts of my second novel, maybe.
should i buy www.chriskillen.com?
i could sell it to the footballer who is also called Chris Killen
or maybe to the tarp-surfing champion who is also called Chris Killen
do you know any other Chris Killens who might want to buy a website called www.chriskillen.com?
i would be willing to split the profits of selling www.chriskillen.com with you
[note: i haven't actually bought www.chriskillen.com yet, so i guess you could buy it and then sell it to me for a profit if you wanted. my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, BTW]
