A bailout plan for writers

The CEOs of the automobile industry are a great inspiration to me.

As is Tao Lin.

Shares in an individual writer's forthcoming novel are one thing however.

I feel writers, all writers, needs a bailout plan too.

Take GUNK, my second novel, for instance.

An extract from my second novel GUNK is due to appear in the next 3am / Offbeat anthology.

But GUNK is in danger.

GUNK runs on alternative fuel sources but might never happen because GUNK has staggering debts and has made poor investment choices in the last two years.

Bail GUNK out with a massive cash injection, and you save one novel.

Bail out writers with a $700 billion dollar plan, and you are saving a system.
