I liked the part about your life's work in blood, or however it was put. So true, isn't it??? :)
How did I miss THAT LOL? Man I must be tired.
Or the part about stalking. Loved that too... it's all just freaking hysterical. The one about "tomorrow I might love something more" is also quite funny. We should generate some of these samples and post them here, don't you think?
Ha! That was good. My friend, Jane Porter, read a bunch of her old rejection letters (15 published books ago) as part of a keynote speech, and some of them were nearly that hysterical! I also know a friend who received a real rejection letter that listed in paragraph form every POSSIBLE reason the manuscript might have been rejected, up to and including, "you might be a lousy writer." We got a great laugh out of that one!Shannon
Is perseverance the smae as stalking? *confused*Kidding! LOL I loved the giggle , thanks for the link.
Now why didn't I think of the lizard angle for the western story I tried to sell all those years ago? Though my story featured a pig. I suppose I could have sent along pork rinds instead *g*Jaci
LOVED the lizard bit...I just can't help but wonder if it would require extra postage on the SASE?
Fun! Don't you sometimes wish you could send a rejection letter with "tomorrow I might love something more" or another snarky phrase in it? Ah, the pitfalls of maintaining a professional image. :)
I have a sudden urge to write an Apocalypse Cookbook...Charlene www.charleneteglia.com
NOTE TO SELF: Don't send live lizards along with western submissions.
