How Not To Write A Novel
Neil Stevenson

Like me, he would be the editor of a famous style and fashion magazine that was threatened with closure. Unlike me, he would settle on a way of saving his magazine: he would put A-list celebrities on the cover, and then, just as the issue hit the newsstands, he would assassinate the celebrity. Boom! The surge in public interest would lead to sales, and his magazine would get a reprieve. But he would have to keep murdering more celebrities to sustain this success, and this would lead to problems.

Okay, now that would make for an awesome story. Murdering the celebrities in order to get exposure? The media’s depravity knows no bounds!
