    Fully occupied? You're filling in the cracks between housework, internet grocery shopping and sorting stuff for my daughter's birthday party tomorrow, don't flatter yourself.

    Three hours is a long crack lmao

    She hates me like her man wants to date me. He probably would.

    No daddy to help you alleviate the three hours for your shopping and party planning? :(

    He is smart, whereas as you are just extremely rude.

    You want to write about somewhere, you do the research yourself.

    If you come back to this thread, Apryl, I'd like to offer my services to you. I can tell from the things you've written here tonight that you are a woman of fine literary taste. I have no doubt that when push comes to shove you'll be able to rise above your fellow Americans' habits of misunderstanding grammar to be able to knock this dreadful 'could care less' stuff on the head and churn out a wonderful piece of fiction that really gets to grips with the realities of Londoners' lives that even Londoners themselves will marvel at, wondering if in fact the author herself has been moving amongst them unknown for decades, and perhaps even questioning how they'd always failed to see just how gritty and real and violent their lives really were.

    I've in the past written many a published review (print published, not just this fly-by-night online reviewing malarkey that any Tom, Dick or Harry can knock out) of books, and in fact snippets of my reviews have been printed in following editions of those books (well, one book in fact, but let's not worry about the details). I think taking on board someone with my expertise will help you market your manuscript in ways that will ensure that you are no longer an ASPIRING AUTHOR but someone who has countless millions of pound and is able to buy her very own Hogwarts just like the Queen. Then you'll not have to worry when it comes to future authorial projects with all this tiring research (I think we can both agree that thoroughly researching a book is a mug's game, and that every successful author out there will tell you that all it takes is passion, innate talent, and the ability to be aggressive in online communities), because you'll be in a position to simply trade off* your incredibly well-known name, just like Rowling always did even before she was famous and rich. But you WILL be rich, so you'll be able to do it even better.

    Stick with me, kid. Between us we might not have much experience, but that doesn't matter. People who are meant to make it in this life will most assuredly make it as long as they have the right amount of zeal, and did I mention aggression?

    *note that I only used 'off' instead of 'off of' - if you're writing from the point of view of English people that's another dreadful Americanism you'll want to address. See also: 'got' and 'gotten'.

    I'll await your reply.
