    "Turn on your computer, write a blog post and you're an author,"

    Everyone's An Author

    Between LOLs, emoticons and 140-character rants, it may seem like digital communication has only served to stunt young people's writing abilities.

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Just two years ago and earlier, I used to teach people how to do this very thing.

    I never intended to help blithering idiots get published, however.

    Sorry about that!

    People write books all the time regarding stuff one can find with a simple google search ... and make $$$ ... go back and write a book and make some cash if you want.

    I can see why people buy such books ...
