Fictional readers


I believe that since works of fiction are read by real people, my non fiction writing should have a large number of fictional readers.

I used to believe it should have a lot of real readers, but that didn't work out.

And so here I am with my giant, wonderful community of fictional clerkmanifesto fans! I try to pick ten random letters from them every day to respond to personally. I try to assure each of them that I'm just a regular person deep down. But I still don't know what to do with all these readers' Patreon money. Currently I just have it piling up in various savings and brokerage accounts. I guess eventually, at the current rate, these accounts will become so large I will be able to take over the world with it all!

At which point American urban zoning laws will change, let me tell you!

All shall love me and despair.

But you are probably wondering: "Hey, I'm pretty sure I'm a real person. How then am I reading this clerkmanifesto blog post?"

Oh, this one is more... fictional.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
