    Maybe write about the cat’s life, more excitement?

    I know for a fact that I am not the most boring person on Earth.

    That would be interesting.

    It is something to leave to your descendants. Their computers will probably rewrite it and shorten it.

    When you have nothing to say, use a thesaurus to up the word count.

    A great writer can keep readers fascinated by the most mundane things.

    Behind every great author is a great editor. As an editor, she should know that it’s spelled “patootie”

    People will read good writing even if it’s not about a celebrity. I just attended an event where hundreds of people paid good money to see an actor tell the true story of a janitor. As mundane a story as there is, but well-told. The audience went away well satisfied.

    Do a Trump, find someone, blame them for everything, make up lies and say No quid pro quo and then tell all.

    Actually, if people do give a rat’s patoot, that still doesn’t add up to a lot of sales. You want them to give a larger patoot than that.

    You COULD pull a trump, have SOMEONE ELSE write it, and CLAIM that you did and that you are an expert at EVERYTHING…

    Apparently, Betty is the pragmatist. Bob is the dreamer. Not a bad combination for longevity.

    Apparently not. How else to explain the success of the Paris Hilton and the Kardashians.

    Great Writing: something you remember longer than the last tweet, post, text, or instagram you received.

    A “′Classic′ – a book which people praise and don’t read.” Mark Twain.

    A personal tell-all book also relies on one having something worth telling. Doesn’t appear Bob has much source material.

    It doesn’t matter as long as the writer gives a cat’s (sic) patoot. (Slightly better than a rat’s patoot.)

    You could write like Ayn Rand, form a simplistic opinion and repeat it over and over. That should make it true.

    Judging by the people called “Celebrities” these days, the bar for giving a rat’s patoot must be very low.

    Claim it’s an Unauthorized “Tell All” Bio of Bill Clinton and it’ll sell a Million Copies before the ink is dry.

    Be Sure to title it something like “The Real Story of The Blue Dress”.

    Sort of like when a cartoonist starts with making inane political jokes that cater to the one percent because he doesn’t like the person in office.
