I'm really wondering when American women are gonna figure out they can get porn for free on the web, if they aren't hot for good editing.

NEW YORK — E L James' latest project is a journal that also offers a few tips on one of life's most enduring passions: writing.

Vintage Books announced Monday that James has collaborated with the publisher on "Fifty Shades of Grey: Inner Goddess (A Journal)."

It includes lined pages for readers to set down their own ideas, or "inner goddess." It also contains a foreword by the million-selling author, professional advice and excerpts from her work. Vintage says the journal will have a soft leather cover, "bonded." Vintage is a paperback imprint of Random House Inc.

James' erotic trilogy was acquired by Vintage last year and has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. The "Inner Goddess" journal will be published May 1.

Chuck Wendig put it best - he said "A writing guide by the 50 SHADES OF GREY author is like a cookbook written by Ronald McDonald."

Fifty Shades of Grey - A husbands view

The missus bought a Paperback,
Down Shepton, Saturday.
I had a look inside her bag;
T'was "Fifty Shades Of Grey".

Well I just left her to it,
And at ten I went to bed.
An hour later she appeared;
The sight filled me with dread…

In her left she held a rope
And in her right a whip!
She threw them down upon the floor,
And then began to strip.

Well fifty years or so ago.
I might have had a peek.
But Mabel hasn't weathered well,
She's eighty four next week!!

Watching Mabel bump and grind,
Could not have been much grimmer.
And things then went from bad to worse,
She toppled off her Zimmer!

She struggled back upon her feet,
A couple minutes later.
She put her teeth back in and said
I must be the dominator!!

Now if you knew our Mabel,
You'd see just why I spluttered.
I'd spent two months in traction,
For the last complaint I'd uttered.

She stood there nude and naked,
Bent forward just a bit.
I went to hold her, sensual like,
and stood on her left tit!!

Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out,
My god what had I done!?
She moaned and groaned then shouted out:
"Step on the other one"!!

Well readers, I can't tell no more..

About what occurred that day.
Suffice to say my jet black hair,
Turned fifty shades of grey.

Well said, Monty. 

My local alternative paper had a poll about the trailer.  http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2014/07/24/what-do-you-think-of-the-50-shades-of-grey-trailer.  Option 3 nailed me completely.
