    Like Homer, Larry should dictate; his son should write.

    Croc could find a ghost-writer like some authors do (like actors, actresses, showgirls, etc.).

    In the French movie BETTY BLUE, a publisher writes this rejection letter: “Your style is unbearable. You deliberately wrote a non-novel!”

    From the books I find online, Croc is pretty standard. Whatever happened to proofreaders?

    Harry Secome commenting on Spike Milligan, preface to “The Little Pot Boiler.”:

    I first met him in North Africa during the last war. I was laundering my white flag in a wadi when I became aware of being watched by a man wearing a German helmet, an Italian tunic and British boots.

    “Don’t believe in taking chances,” he said, and I knew at once that here was a man after my own heart.

    Our friendship ripened in the warm sun, and one day he confided to me that he had decided to become a writer. Shyly he shewed me a piece of paper with the word ‘NEVERTHELESS’ on it.

    “I’m going to write another word tomorrow,” he said.

    Try self-publishing the book. You probably won’t be able to get anyone to read it, but at least you’ll be a published author.

    Larry, if no publisher will accept your book, you can always self publish it.

    Sell it to Netflix. They’ll make it into a series starring Millie Jim Bobby Boy Howdy Brown, Billy Porter, Lizzo and Jaden Smith wearing a dress and market it to Tweenies and it will sweep the Emmys.

    Larry, try another publication.

    Here is a method that has been demonstrated. Take a subject and blame climate change. A peer review board will pass it and it will get published in the journal Nature.

    That’s all we need, nowadays, for most published work.

    And that’s a shame.

    I love him. He is so funny. I would publish him immediatly. Besides, he’s right: a publisher should be less rude, as it is very rude to say “ignorant” to an ignorant.

    Is there a reason that the young gator speaks “normally” and the father speaks “gator”? Maybe because the father was born and raised in a swamp?

    It’s the crocs, so thumbs up for that. But it’s just a static “conversation wall” bit. But I’ll take it.

    Unfortunately, there are too many publishers willing to put out crazy and illiterate books. There is a market for them.

    My aunt on my father’s side, by marriage, did walk on roles in soap operas and for a while was an editor for a vanity press. She was a nice, straight forward woman in her personal life.
