The Most Interesting Writer in the World

Welcome to Chiseled in Rock from-the-planet-Krypton version. With the new writers who have joined our staff, Pat Stoltey, Tamela Buhrke, Janet Fogg, and E.C. Stacy, we guarantee entertainment, spotlights and plugs for authors, and nuggets of advice for writers be they aspiring or working on the next release. Get ready for cartoons, comedy, backstage passes to the writer’s life, sketch videos, novels excerpts, contests, prizes, and how-to-write segments that not only cut through the malarkey, but also could be their own sitcom.

And that’s just the next few months.

To get started, let’s have some fun with The Most Interesting Writer in the World game and promo op.

You know those Dos Equis commercials with the cool little observations about the most interesting man in the world? Think one up in terms of an author. Example: The most interesting writer in the world gets query letters from agents and editors.

Post your slogan in the comments to this post with a link to your webpage (last part optional).

We’ll choose the five wittiest comebacks, announce the winners on December 8th, and repost the winning entries on the RMFW facebook status field with a link to your website. Plus, we’ll paste your book cover/picture and or book jacket synopsis or business logo etc. on the sidebar of our blog for a week. Oh, and we ask that you be a follower of the Rock. We’ll follow your blog as well.

The most interesting writer in the world is preparing for his death. He built a 10,000 s.f. Malibu mansion to house his ashes and furnished it with a king-sized bed (over which his ashes will be spread) and a $75k Bosendorfer piano. His will specifies that a pianist dressed as a French maid must come over once a week forever and tickle his ivories.

The most interesting writer in the world is blind. Yet, he taught is German Shepherd, Ragnar, how to take dictation. It wasn't until their fifth best selling novel that the duo's "wag-team" effort was discovered.

I think I should recuse myself from the contest, but last night I thought...

The most interesting writer in the world always brings chocolate to critique!

Not that I was hungry, or anything.

...foregoes a day of writing to take the grandchildren to the zoo.
