Amazon Publishing: Hey, David. So glad I was able to get you on the phone. Listen, I hear you have a Tumblr with over 30,000 followers and that you are, in particular, very popular with other Brooklyn hipsters like yourself. This is exactly the sort of buzzy project we really need to launch our trade publishing program! How about you write a novel for us?
David Shapiro: [Thinks for a minute.] I don't know if I'm qualified to write a whole book. Before my Tumblr I never really wrote at all, just term papers for high school and college. And as you can see, the writing on my Tumblr is really amateurish. If I did try to write a novel, I doubt it would be any good.
Amazon: Good? What does "good" have to do with it?
