Just when I’ve finally decided to stop hating all over what people have read and enjoyed…decided to embrace 50 Shades of Grey as a catalyst for people reading more than they have since they were forced to read Lord of the Flies in high school…I found this out:
E.J. James is publishing a writing advice guide. Sort of.
Yes, I know it’s technically a journal that happens to contain writing tips and advice in it. And I know this news broke a while ago, but I was too busy explaining why I won’t read your book and I totally forgot to complain about this new development.
To be clear, I’ve never read 50 Shades of Grey. I did, however, read the reviews. Many of which contained excerpts. And I was unimpressed. The kicker? I don’t have any formal literary training. I went to school for Biology. And I was still unimpressed. What might that infer? Hmmmm?
So for little ole’ E.L. to come out with a journal that includes “professional advice” is just baffling. How baffling? Allow me to paint you a picture.
E.L. James Publishing a Writing an Advice Guide is Like…
- Lindsay Lohan Opening a Rehab Center
- Joan Rivers Preaching About Aging Gracefully & Naturally
- Paris Hilton Giving Resume Tips
- Taylor Swift Singing About Healthy, Long-Term Relationships
- The Duggars Advocating Birth Control
Oh, and the title of this project? 50 Shades of Grey: Inner Goddess.
Maybe Ms. James simply has a great sense of humor. I mean, she’d have to in order to name her journal/writing guide after quite possibly the most annoying aspect of her books, right?
