Absolved vs. Citadel
Mike, I challenge you to complete and publish your novel Absolved before we break ground for the Citadel. Both you and I have hundreds of people anxiously waiting for our projects to be completed. So, let's see who get's there first.
Now I know what you are saying... this is not a fair contest! After all, Team Citadel has many people working towards making that goal a reality, and Mike is left to complete his book Absolved single handed. To make the contest seem fair to the onlookers, the people who make up Team Citadel are all working people, we all have jobs. Mike however, sits at home day in, day out, leeching money from Team Citadel to pay his welfare checks.
Not fair enough you say? Mike is a sick man you say? Well let's give Mike a head start. I don't know when Mike first undertook his novel, and I don't care to go digging to find out. What I do know is when Mike said his book was completed, ready for print.
“And, oh, by the way, for those of you who have been flogging me about whenMike's book was already completed in April of 2010, a full two years before Team Citadel came up with the idea for their project.
Absolved will be done – here it is. (Holds up a thumb drive.) My part is done,
and it will be sent off to the editor and publisher next week.”
I say the contest is fair. First to reach their goal, is the victor. All Mike needs to do is mail that flash drive to his publisher. Maybe he's short on cash, anyone want to send him 6 bucks for shipping? Team Citadel must fund, purchase land, and break ground to be the victor.
But what's in it for you, the casual onlooker? No matter the victor, you will have your book, or you will have your Citadel. Sounds like a win-win, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
Anyone willing to place bets?
