A while back, I sat in a room together with a coworker, listening as our manager laid out the work he wanted from us.
When he was finished, my coworker leaned forward. “When do you want it by?”
“Hmm.” My manager paused for a sip of coffee. “This is a new project. Neither of you have done something like this before. I’d rather not set a timeframe that has you rush and do sloppy work.”
“Alright,” he said, and proceeded to ask one of the cleverest questions I’ve ever heard.
Eli Landes is one of those weird writers who just can't get enough. A marketing writer by day and a fiction writer whenever he can squeeze in the time, he spends his spare time working on his novel, writing short fiction, or daydreaming (I mean, researching). His main genre is Jewish fiction, but he's been known to dabble in the weird, the absurd, and the truly dark.
