An Excerpt

An excerpt from the novel I'm not writing

Sand and dust blew down from the low hills and in from the desert and across the cracked and broken road the old and beaten pickup truck followed obediently without much care or concern. The odometer rolled to seven and a small dirt road appeared as if commanded to do so and I pulled hard to the left and took the long since traveled path and followed it up into the dead and brown hills and towards the old and weathered and forgotten house in the far distance, a house filled with a hundred years of life and death and pain and sorrow and forgiving and betrayal.

Pretty sure that could be 'forgival and betrayal'. I'm just saying.

Hey, Ronnie!
Any ETA on "The Cave" for iPad ?
Thanks!

Pretty sure that should be '"The Cave" for Commodore 64'.

Pretty sure your name should be David Thomson. Just saying.

Pretty sure I wish Ron'd just answer the goddamned question ....

I have no idea. I'm as much in the dark as you are.

Whose woods these are I think I know.

Would it really kill you to throw in a comma every now and then?

At first I thought that was the point, but then you went ahead and threw one in at the end there. Now I can't decide.

Maybe it's just to save on bandwidth.

Ron. What are you currently working on?

You're implying he's working on something.
