    If you ever question your writing skills… 

    Very nice way of putting Fifty Shades of Grey. Will not read this book. Will watch the movie though.

    aaron's random musings

    just read Fifty Shades of Grey. Seriously. I’m only about 60 pages in and it’s hilariously awful writing. I think I might put it in a shadow box or some sort of glass case so that whenever I get existential and I feel like what I’m writing is crap — all I have to do is look at Fifty Shades of Grey and I will be reminded that anything I write will be infinitely better than this waste of trees.

    But really. Man, what a mess that thing is. I understand how the subject matter might be titillating for people, but how do they get past such godawful writing? I feel like it’s because people have low reading standards. Like how The Da Vinci Code was also popular but was also not subtly written.

    Oh well. You are my saviour, Fifty Shades. Thank you.
