Links On The Left, Part 1

This is a brief segment I've been wanting to do regarding the links I've posted - holy shit - on the left. I figure it might be nice to give you a brief summation of what each is about, lest you think I'm navigating you straight into Brazilian fart porn (yes, it really exists).

We'll start from the top...

Michael Kelly's Page of Misery

A British writer, Michael Kelly hasn't experienced much overall success other than the traffic to his website and a couple of books those assholes in the publishing industry finally recognized as gold. I've read almost everything he's written and he's a big reason I continue writing to this day, much to the chagrin of whoever reads Kellie Pickler's fan mail. His prose, topics, and self-deprecating style are good at make me laugh much. Do you see how reading improves one's own writing?

Selections I recommend:
A Bad Kid
Dear Clarissa
How To Be Calm
Test Your Lateral Thinking
Journal of Distration

It took a lot of self-control to not name more than that. Oh yeah, there will probably be some British slang you won't recognize here and there, but you'll get used to it. If not, watch a Guy Ritchie movie or something. Jesus, I can't do everything for you.

So fuck off and read his shit already...
