Who if anyone considers it worthwhile for me to actually be doing what I am doing at this time which is, actually, hilariously, rewriting UNNAMED (under the working title Anonymity in the Modern Age, which the intrepid reader may recall is the original name of Unnamed).

This rewrite is compulsive and propulsive. I don't know what to do to make the book perfect but in some ways I know exactly what to do to make it the book I always sort of meant it to be. But I sort of didn't exactly know how to do that until now. It's very strange this feeling.

I am doing this because one of my school buddies was like, man, if you wrote a novel, and there's anything about it that you actually like, why the fuck did you give up on it? And I was like


So I'm doing that. And sort of working on Elegant Battle Face Teenagers one agonizing realization of derivativity at a time. I hate read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones over the weekend and I was SHOCKED and APPALLED to discover that (duh) a) I didn't invent drawing on oneself for super power reasons as an original thought and b) it was HARRY POTTER fanfic with the names and situations vaguely sort of find/replaced.

Not to mention that my hero in EBFT is basically a male Buffy with ranged rather than melee super powers. Not to mention that blah blah blah.

I really need to be a staff writer or editor where I can make other people's ideas better than they already are. I'm so repetitive. That said.

ANONYMITY IN THE MODERN AGE - that book has some dope shit it in it man. Cool.
