So Marcus the writer became VERY famous after writing his first book. He explains how everybody knew him, he was all over the news, etc. He had wasted tons of money on unneccesary things since he was already nominated many awards. He was in a contract with a great book company as well. Because of all his spending he never really cared to start writing his second book until after his “workers” “assistants” (not sure what you call them) told him he was running out of time. After a year or so his fame went down hill. He then came to realize he had a sickness of blank pages. He tried many things to help him write but he still can’t come up with anything good. Then he decides to go with his old professor to see if by going there he can come up with something.
