Great news! The third Superego (which I’m calling Superego: Betrayal) is to the alpha reader, my wife, the lovely and talented SarahK. So it’s basically done — except I keep changing my mind on the ending and might rewrite the last chapter before she gets to it.
My wife’s job is to keep me from embarrassing myself, so she’s always the first to read my new stuff. If she likes it or just has a few small suggestions, then I’ll soon be looking for beta readers. If instead she’s more like, “This is horrible. I don’t even think I can look at you knowing you wrote this. I want a divorce.” …well, then it will be a bit longer.
I guess the only thing you can do at this stage is pester her to get her to read it quickly. But don’t tell her I told you to do that or she’ll get mad at me. Also, tell her I’m a good husband and she should stay married to me even if I write bad.
And by the way, when I’m looking for beta readers, it will be through my Substack email list, so if you’re interested, make sure you’re signed up.
The Best of The Babylon Bee
Once again, it’s time for the very best of The Babylon Bee (i.e., stuff I wrote) and to remind you to actually read the articles as we hide a lot of jokes there.
I like this one because it’s just so dumb and over the top.
I also find it funny when one guy is just hated for no reason. Ends up there is no problem with structural racism or white supremacy — it’s just Steve.
Again, I don’t have much to say about this one other than my favorite compliment for satire: It’s so stupid. I also like taking a dumb premise — Meow Mix is trying to defraud us — and argue it as seriously as possible.
Once again, it’s time for me to show you how it’s done by demonstrating what good tweets look like. This is what we in the industry call “content.”
