View Full Version : Write 1 Sub 1 Sell 1 or DIE

04-01-2014, 09:52 PM
Your new alien overlords, who toil tirelessly for the benefit of mankind, have decreed that human efforts must be in balance with reward. To that end, those who have been given the task-name "writer" must now meet the following conditions:

The requirement is now Write 1, Sub 1, SELL 1. Monetary coinage is acceptable, as is remuneration in the form of livestock, excess children, and/or mining rights. The overlords recognize that their need to fund their beneficent works must be balanced by a traditional reward-system for the content workers, and thus you will be generously granted the right to keep 5% of such remuneration.

We will also allow you to continue to set your own timeframe goals for completing the W1S1S1, but with the need for resources to remain fairly and evenhandedly distributed, your daily caloric intake will necessarily be tied to productivity, and thus not allowed to exceed your daily output of SOLD words. We regret the inevitable suffering and demise of haikuists, but in balance feel the positive future we can build together far outweighs such sacrifices.

All glory to our alien overlords. The future starts today! Right now, in fact. Are you writing?

You're sounding a bit like my husband today, magnificent overlord.

Aggy, thinking this might explain a few things

If I write one, sub one, and fail to sell, will our beloved overlords reduce me to my basic components and use them as nutrients?

Nyram hopes it serves.

One more death shall be one more service.
