on writing your stories #4

long long ago here’s how a
clever chap got himself in print
I forget where I read it he
wrote to a newspaper that
had a q-and-a column giving
a line of his own poem and
asking did anyone know the
author he signed a fake name
then a week or so later he
answered the query telling
who the author was – his own
name this time – and “Here is
the full text of the poem,” then
signed a different fake name to
the authority who supplied the
info you can still self-publish
today a lot of us do but it costs
more we need some of that guy’s
ingenuity don’t you think?
