Remember Rebecca Martinson, the University of Maryland student who wrote that “deranged” email to her sorority sisters earlier this year? She’s about to get yet another chance to put all of that… creativity… to work.
Martinson has teamed up with the creators of White Girl Problems to write a novel, according to New Republic. She did not respond to the Baltimore Sun‘s request for comment, and it is unknown what the novel will be about.
Her story went viral back in April when Gawker published an email she sent to her Delta Gamma sisters, in which she criticized them for their refusal to participate in “Greek Week” activities. The email was… a little hostile.
“If you just opened this like I told you to, tie yourself down to whatever chair you’re sitting in, because this email is going to be a rough f*cking ride.
“For those of you that have your heads stuck under rocks, which apparently is the majority of this chapter, we have been F*CKING UP in terms of night time events and general social interactions with Sigma Nu. I’ve been getting texts on texts about people LITERALLY being so f*cking AWKWARD and so f*cking BORING. If you’re reading this right now and saying to yourself ‘But oh em gee Julia, I’ve been having so much fun with my sisters this week!’, then punch yourself in the face right now so that I don’t have to f*cking find you on campus to do it myself.”
Though the publication of Martinson’s email predicated her resignation from the sorority, it spawned numerous parodies and enjoyed cult status as one of the most popular Internet stories of 2013.
Since then, she has actually started writing a raunchy dating column for Bro Bible, and has gained more than 10,000 Twitter followers (and she’s actually a pretty entertaining follow).
Gravity was a good movie and all, but personally I would’ve made the title “You, Me, and Debris”

Anyway, we’ll keep you posted on Martinson’s book. It sounds like it might be the girl-version of Tucker Max’s I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell.
