  1. God gave me the story just the way it is and nothing in it should change.
  2. If you give me your phone number, I’ll call you when it is finished.
  3. I expect a six figure signing bonus.
  4. My mom said it was the best book she’s ever read.
  5. Don’t steal my story.
  6. Don’t make me go all “Shack” on you.
  7. I’ve never thought of myself as a hero, but I could tell you about my journey. (hero’s journey)
  8. This is the first in a ten book series.
  9. Here’s the full manuscript for you to read on the plane on your way home.
  10. My book is better than all of the drivel out there on the best seller list.

What crazy saying could you add to our list?
