Stick it to a Billionaire!
Contrast that with bidding on Evil Editor to fully edit your book in the next few weeks. For starters, you can deduct EE as a charitable contribution rather than a business expense, so you don't have to have any writing income. And you get edited by the world's most famous editor, not some ETL heroin addict. And best of all, with this particular 1-day auction ending today, there's no way it's gonna get anywhere near $3500. It hasn't even reached a tenth of that as I type this.
Even if you don't have a completed book, you should be bidding on this just to keep some billionaire for whom $3500 is pocket change from getting a bargain. You know that no matter how high you go he'll outbid you, but for one brief moment you'll be a thorn in his side. It's human nature not to want billionaires to get great deals. This is your chance to stick it to one.
