“Burn down the disco
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
It says nothing to me about my life”

(‘Panic’ – Johnny Marr & Steven Patrick Morrissey)

What you should do to make your book immortal:

  • Get the obvious things right: spelling, syntax, grammar, character, plot, message etc.
  • Make it speak to successive generations about their life.

There’s a whole set of other, more peripheral stuff, but if you get these two things right, then you have a Classic in the making on your hands.

And now – put a coin in the jukebox, my friends: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlYXp_3A64k
