Edward Norton = Anton Chekhov

Of course, this is just based on my vast knowledge of Russian literature and yesterday’s post. Hmmm … if that were the case, then maybe Chekhov would talk to fellow writers like this:

“The first rule is: You do not talk about writer’s block. The second rule is: YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT WRITER’S BLOCK!. Third rule: if a reader yells “Stop!”, goes limp, or taps out, the story is over. Fourth rule: only two writers to a manuscript. Fifth rule: one story at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: the stories are written out. No shirt, no shoes, no laptops in a bookstore. Seventh rule: stories will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time, you have to write.”

And literature would never be the same …

(By the way, I realize that I put Chekhov’s head over Brad Pitt’s body, but, since this is the case, I figured it was OK.)
