Fitzgerald, F. Scott: News Of Paris--Fifteen Years Ago. v1. 06 Jan 09
You should know that it doesn’t take any kind of genius or any great deal of intelligence to post books to MobileRead; but rather dogged determination of Will, perhaps coupled with blind, insenate stupidity, if you care to see it my way – and to sit hour after hour, focusing on em dashes, book titles, titles, paragraphs, subtitles, changing single quotes to double quotes, etc. – when one could be easily be having a healthy relationship with a human being of the gender of one's choice is probably the better decision.
I’ve assembled and uploaded 56 short stories – but only in one format. (Add imp, .rb, and prc to that and adds another 168 additional titles. After I actually “finish” with Fitzgerald, I’ll look at the prc conversion first.)
In the meantime, I’ve got a good old noir calling me, and the author’s name is Ed Lacy. –Then, I’m going to be looking at Fitzgerald’s novels.
This is an unfinished story by the great F. Scott Fitzgerald, published in 1947, seven years after his death.
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
