WRITING A BOOK IN AMERICA !

Andy Wahol is quoted to say that everyone deserves to have fitteen minutes of fame. Writing a book in America is as tradicional as Thankgiving ou apple pie. Everyone wants to write a book, no matter if whatever they want to write about is enough to sustain the interest that a book demands. Just an episode in the life of the writer is not enough to generate the curiosity that the readers want. One of most precious stories about writing a book has to do with the collapsing of a crane in Times Square. The media was interviewing everybody around to get the details when a construction worker said that he witnessed the whole thing. When the reporters asked him to describe the accident, he replyed that unfortunatelly he could not do it because...
he was thinking about writing a book!

"Our earth is degenerate in these latter days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book and the end of the world is evidently approaching,” attributed to an Assyrian stone tablet of about 2800 B.C.
