Update: No, that workshop post isn’t here, and it doesn’t mean I played an April Fools joke on my readers. I meant to post the workshop post on Mad Genius Club, but I haven’t had enough caffeine. If you’re here for that post go to Mad Genius Club.
Good morning oppressed children of story and plot; inglorious workers in the vine of words! I bring portentous news. Your brothers and sisters, the rodents, are on your side.
You probably thought the Rodent Liberation Front was merely a flourish of – running dog of literary imperialism and gender traitor – Sarah A. Hoyt’s imagination in Gentleman Takes A Chance. You were wrong! We exist. Struggling and nibbling at the margins of society, we have formed our plan to take over the world one nut at a time.
This being so, it will not surprise you to know that we found it necessary to reclaim for the people the property heretofore known as According To Hoyt or Sarah A. Hoyt’s Blog. First, because it was being self-evidently written by a nut, second because many of the regulars appeared to be nuts, third because it often strayed into the field of science fiction which is, you might call it, a nut rich environment.
Since our primary goal is the redistribution of nuts to those who
grow them, harvest them, own them, steal them, we had to claim this blog as the glorious conquest of the RLF.
Now that the blog is ours we
enjoy enjoin you to forget the nonsense about a human wave. You will never be anything as individuals. The purpose of the individual is to serve the greater good of the state.
Join the RLF. Like us, you are oppressed and downtrodden. Think of all the people who don’t like your books. Think of the evil corporation Amazon who sells your book in mere electrons, instead of comforting paper. Think of all the poor publishers, who shall perish without your work and money.
Like us you are fond of nuts. You are our natural allies. In the collective, you shall write exactly what we tell you to – think of the joy of not having to think for yourselves – and you shall be free to share your royalties with us.
The nuts, united, shall never be defeated. Talent to those who don’t have it! Redistribute the benefits of the writing, not the writing work.
Together we shall win!
