The Department of Minor Incompetence Correction by Rhapsody In Prose

Got Competence? 

The Department of Minor Incompetence Correction is a quasi-governmental agency that battles the forces of incompetence through unorthodox means. Its newest recruit, Brandon Wilson, finds himself suddenly thrust into the weird and below-the-radar world of incompetence and competence, along with a host of equally strange denizens from chapter #257.

“To change big things you have to change small things, and every big task is made up of many smaller tasks. Don’t you know your Gunslinger Girl? So if we say we’re going to change small things, we end up making a big impact. We’re actually we’re a lot more dangerous and subversive than they’ll ever know!”

Note: The Department of Minor Incompetence Correction is unfinished, and will likely remain so.

Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Nov 22, 2009: The writing is fairly solid in the first chapter. Not sure yet where the story is going but the characters are an interesting mix.

Enjoying The Battle (not a full review)

By BFuniv, member

Jan 10, 2010: Entertaining YA read, nicely paced. I’ve read through the completed chapter 8. I wouldn’t use the e-word on the pages, but it does emit a whiff of educational game atmosphere. Pleasant, and showing that learning does not have to be boring.

You’ll have to negotiate the rights to craft a related game with Rhapsody In Prose.

Centered around high school relationships, most of the characters are strong and unique. Even the bit players add to the fun. Lots of pleasant surprises so far, and battles with the evil of incompetence are just beginning to escalate.

A few small errors noticed, such as using ‘site’ instead of ‘sight,’ but that’s in keeping with the geeks of the story. I make the same mistake fairly often. Geeks Rule!

I hope the author keeps it going.
