You've got to like this plan:
People understand that athletes need a little assistance in the writing department, so it’s no big deal when they use co-authors. But as a writer, I wonder why I can’t try out for the NFL using a co-athlete. I’d bring the intangibles, such as my desire to make my co-athlete work extra hard in the off-season to stay in shape. I’d also be willing to make him play hurt. The jumping and running and catching are the easy parts. It’s the “competitiveness” that I’d bring to the mix, and you can’t put a price on that.
Personally, I'm looking for my co-Bill Gates.
