When you finish reading +Minor King close the book and take a breath. Then open the book to the first page and reread the first two lines. Then turn to the back of the book and reread that last line again. Thank you. (And you're welcome.) www.minorking.com #fiction   #writing   #story  
There's a fine line between faith and madness. Minor King, American Fiction.

I was going to watch Mad Max Fury Road, and then read some reviews. These are hilarious. Pretty sure I'll skip this one. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1392190/reviews?ref_=tt_ov_rt

I recommend watching it. Enjoy it as a stylistic visual exercise and don't get too hung up on… well anything else.
