Lucha Libro: The Future Gets Worse For Writers

Peru makes book writing into a spectator sport and invites aspiring writers into combat

Harlan Ellison would write in the window of a bookstore, so passerby could see there was nothing mystical or mysterious about writing.

But Peru is taking it to a whole new level.

And I have this sinking feeling in my stomach that Mark Burnett or Simon Cowell have read that story and are prepping the series Writer Survivor or American Writing Idol for airing.

Or even worse: Jeff Bezos has called them to pitch such a series.

Maybe change those titles to Kindle Writer Survivor and Amazon Writing Idol…
