I found this a few days ago – I do not know why, but memes are supposed to spread so I guess it is working.
Here is an exercise –
- Grab the nearest book.
- Open the book to page 123.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the sentence in your blog – along with these instructions.
- Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.
So I gave it a try. The nearest book to me was “The Screenwriter’s Survival Guide – or, Guerilla Meeting Tactics and Other Acts of War” – by Max Adams. [a damn good book, I might add.]
