I heard a story once, not sure if it’s true.
An author went back to college for reasons that I don’t remember. In the course of his studies he took an English class, in that English class they went over HIS book. So he proceeded to explain what HE had been trying to say in HIS book. When he received his paper it had been heavily red-penned. he went to the prof and asked if the prof knew who he was, the prof said “Yes, and I’m telling you what you said in your book.”
