On With The Story, by John Barth

I am writing about writing about writing. It is possible that "I" am not me, but merely a character who is writing this writing about writing. Quantum mechanics is also likely involved.
This writing about writing about writing that I am writing is very meta, very pomo, and not very good, as is the writing about which this writing is writing. And the same goes for the writing contained within it ("it" being either this writing, or the writing of which it is writing).
