"It's the perfect scam," he announced. "I'll rent the local coliseum, pack in writers from everywhere, charge them a hundred bucks a head and do a seminar on how to become a successful writer. They're all a bunch of monkeys with keyboards, they'll never suspect the truth and before anyone finds out Operation Enduring Digitarti will be a giant success." He dreamed of taking his show on the road to coliseums and convention centers all over the country.
His only problem was he was unemployed and broke. And the local coliseum wanted 100 grand up-front.
