Rule the World vs. "I Don't Think The Story Has Earned This Ending"

On the other hand, a single, hand-written page from the manuscript was just sold at auction for approximately $35,000. (Via The Elegant Variation)


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
