Just started reading Will Ferguson's "Happiness ™" and wanted to share some of the tidbits from his "Wall of Bad Writing" (the character, Edwin, works in a publishing house, and is going through the slush pile - unsolicited and unagented writing):

"The red-hot bullets sprayed around Agent McDermit's head, trained to kill with his bear hands..."

"She stood on the hillside, her jet blonde hair blowing in the breeze."

"She said nothing. She just bit her lower lip and licked her upper lip..." [That's my favourite of the three, you try and do it!]

So far this book is amusing me. I'll let you know what I really think about it when I get more than 3 chapters along. :)
