"I don't care if it took you a whole month. If you want this to be a best seller, you're going to have to do better than this."
Amilanu wheeled his draft back to his place and began working on the next draft: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."

Love it, Michael. Such a great drabble concept.
Let's hope he didn't end up with a chip on his shoulder!
