Who is W.A. Stanley, and why should you care?
W.A. Stanley (or Was, for the sake of simplicity) is a writer of great repute. So great is this repute, in fact, that Was’ claim to fame is being quoted as a source on Wikipedia – all thanks to a fake news article he wrote for Silent Protagonist, fake gaming news website he co-founded (“GamerGate Doesn’t Pay: The Cautionary Tale of Adam Baldwin“).
Buoyed by his sudden sense of legitimacy and newfound fame (assuming that the millions of Wikipedia readers follow the sources closely), Was neglected the website; and instead turned his time to playing the videogames he once mocked. Following too many hundred hours replaying the sex scenes in the The Witcher trilogy, the Dragon Age trilogy and the Mass Effect trilogy (let us all agree to refuse to acknowledge Andromeda‘s existence), the COVID-19 pandemic hit and Was decided it is his time to shine.
And shine Was will; finally writing his first novel from beginning to end, rather than the outlines and chapters undertaken in previous endeavours, now lost to the annals of history and the thoughts of failure constantly ruminating through his head.
Was’ current work in progress is scheduled for release at some point during 2021. Maybe. Deadlines have never been his thing.
