How To Write Badly Well

Found a great website on how to write badly well.

http://writebadlywell.blogspot.com/

Here is a good tip:

Always use a Thesaurus
Quote:
She manipulated the garment in a cogitative mode.
‘Hmm,’ she vocalised. ‘This attire is verifiably marvellous. What is it constituted from?’

‘From the most meritorious velveteen,’ defined her interlocutor, simpering coincidentally.

‘Is it?’ iterated the party of the first part. ‘That’s felicitous.’

‘Additionally, this specified object has the property of being subdivided in terms of its defining mercantile characteristic, and can be taken possession of for the diminutive quantity of merely a half-dozen currency units,’ the retail employee informed.

‘Exoneration?’ supplicated the protagonist appropriately. The commercial tertiary sector worker eyeballed her perspicaciously.

‘I said it’s five ninety-nine. Do you want it or not?

You ever read *Atlanta Nights*, Madam Broshkina? It's slated as the worst novel ever written ... but it was written by expertsas a spoof to prove that PublishAmerica didn't even read the books they come out with. I can vouch for its profoundly superior inferiority. You can find free downloads on the net. Cheers. Neil

there was a sci fi short story I read when I was a kid about a giant computer (all computers were giant back then) that mass produced stories. I think specifically romances. I figured someone was REALLY pissed at their publisher at the time!
