This is an Open Letter, because some people like to parade their ignorance, small-mindedness, and egomaniac attitudes for the world to see.
Someone on Tumblr reblogged my James Joyce letter and then added this comment with it. Looking at their site, I found out that they are really into James Joyce. First thing’s first: I did not mean to upset anyone. The thing about literature is that everyone can interpret it differently. And because I do not share the same opinions about the first 62 pages of a certain book, I am small-minded and ignorant.
I guess before anyone else reads anything else I write, I should state that this blog is a work of satire. Do I really want to throw this book out the window? No. At this moment, I say I do, but I would never actually do that to a book, whether I like it or not. And, I am going to finish it. Just not any time soon.
I kind of feel special for writing something that angered someone enough to be harsh about my literary opinions, but at the same time I am sad for them. Because they are making a snap judgement on me as a person because of a 700 word comedic blog post.
