Ok, so this dude posted on goodreads that he was reading Lucky Man, and we had swapped books with him, and he's a writer we would like to meet, and we were geeked.
And than the other day he just removed himself from the list, and so we thought that maybe he didn't like the book, but didn't know for sure, and so feeling compulsive we dropped him a note and said we were wondering what was up and totally appreciated any feedback he might have. Not too weird, right?
Well, we don't know because he in turn wrote the following:
"I read about half the book. I set it aside for the time being. I'll take another stab at Lucky Man later this year. Don't want to get into workshopping it."
So, we just have no idea what that means. It seems like it could be dismissive, but seriously, we really have no idea. Not sure how to proceed we wrote to friend and awesome writer/blogger chick Amy Guth and asked her, because you know, she knows everything.Even she though had questions, and while we can't actually copy her full response, because this is a family blog and all, in part she said:
"That's weird. Who know what the hell that even means; people are so weird, iddly and into their own world."
As we stated previously, the rest of her response is sort of unprintable, but very funny. Still, we're no closer to the truth, just smiling. And while smiling isn't bad, if you have any thoughts about this, please let us know.
