How to write a book in three days

This sort of advice pee's me off. I have only read one of his books and considered it derivative, stereotyped. Perhaps thats the answer. Write the same work again and again.

Re: Cheap Flights Anyone?

One experience was enough for me. The interior was grubby with rubbish from the previous flight or flights. You cannot turn around a plane in 30 minutes.

The second point is do they economise on servicing which therefore puts the passenger and crew in danger.

Never again.

Re: Relocating to Spain

Garpu: Walk away from Las Ramblas and the human statues and pickpockets. Go to Barceloneta down the ways from the harbour. There are beaches, good bars, some world class restaurants and some third world ones. I can rabbit on for hours about Barcelona, Picasso museum, Sidre, Tapas. Fluff. Your logic ...

Re: Non-nano folks

Being both logical and English would not the answer to the 50,000 words be to write a stream of consciousness work. Think Kerouac or Brett Easton Ellis with Psycho (What a crap book) That way your riffing on about something unnecessary is artistic and tells you something moar. You can knock out 50,0...

Re: Plagiarism

The Chinese have improved English ! Even I lack the arrogance of that statement. I love English as it is so exact. It accommodates other countries words and accepts euphemisms for what they are; fake covering words. We can do so much with it. Garage manuals and what happens in the soul. If you can a...

Re: Plagiarism

Yes I intended to post that.
The arrogance of the woman who said she had improved the piece without charge to the writer.
Unbelievable.

Moral of the story. If you post online create a Google alert for sections of text.
Then go for the kill.

Update.
She is still updating her blog using pirated material.
The difference is she has disabled and deleted comments so that people complaining about theft and morality are the disappeared.

Some people have no shame.

Yeastless pizza dough.

I am now looking for a recipe for papardelle with mechanically recovered meat.

I have my faults and strengths. I don't know what insomnia is-good or bad ?

Re: Does this happen in America (or elsewhere)?

SORRY !
I was under the impression that pizza dough was yeastless hence no rising time.
I checked and everyone seems to add yeast but rise times vary.

Honest, apart from the slabs of pizza you get in Italy I thought it was unrisen like damper and other breads.

Re: Does this happen in America (or elsewhere)?

I thought the chain pizza places used frozen dough so running out should not be a problem just defrosting. If it was a bespoke pizza place whats so hard about putting flour, oil and water into the industrial blender ? Its not like you need yeast to rise then knock back the risen dough to rise again....
