Where Miss Snark vented her wrath on the hapless world of writers and crushed them to sand beneath her T.Rexual heels of stiletto snark. The blog is dark--no further updates after 5/20/2007.
Oh, dear! ;-)
Doesn't that just say it all.
And what a motto that is!
I should have mentioned that this comes from:http://101reasonstostopwriting.blogspot.com/2007/05/your-may-demotivator.htmlI didn't realize it was going to be posted, or I would have been more careful in my email!
Oh, that is amusing.It's also funny in the headslap fashion, as in *headslap* "why did I think of that!"
Perhaps this should be the new cover for every how-to book/magazine, and appear on all writers' websites.I can't think of a better way to get the message across....
Too funny!Oh, I have to add that picture to my blog...
Well, paper is cheap.
HAHAHAI love it.
Course, that person might have faired better to send in the actual manuscript instead of receipts.
That is so mean, so nasty. So delightfully funny! You are a scamp! If I wanted to send you gin, where would I?
I've just spent a long day reading a screenplay slush pile and I needed a laugh. It was a bitter one, but hearty.
LOL! Well, that certainly gets the point across, doesn't it?
A picture DOES say 1000 words, after all.
The writer's mistake was obvious: they sent the bribe via credit card instead of cash(this post makes a lot more sense if you hone in on the VISA receipts in the picture...)
I'd never thought of this. I could save my prospective agents time and run it through the shredder before I send it.
(this post makes a lot more sense if you hone in on the VISA receipts in the picture...)home, for the love of dog! home in.
Least we forget the importance of Guidelines, Oh Dear! Indeed!!!!
I think I am going to a dark lonely place and cry....
That was my New Age, Web 2.0, Blogosphere Novel! I recognize it because I wrote in on the back of my credit card receipts and sent the cover letter on blue (ocean scented) stationary. I guess I will not be getting a response - I think that I see my SASE in there. Probably had 39 cent stamp on it anyway.
ocean scented?like...fish?or low tide?yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaNo wonder Killer Yapp wanted to sign you up.
From dictionary.com:Phrasal Verb(s): hone in To move or advance toward a target or goal: The missiles honed in on the military installation. To direct one's attention; focus: The lawyer honed in on the gist of the plaintiff's testimony.
Fish - that way you had to read it right away. I figured that you would not want that to sit in your slushpile. Next time I'll try steakbone scented paper despite the fact that I suggest people avoid eating steak.
I then decided to write it up anyway and send a bound copy - to show her I can get published. Here is what I got back.
For some reason that reminds me of the trick test a teacher gave me in high school, where #1 was to read all the directions before writing and #30 was to leave the paper blank. The number of people who need this poster is a sad thing to contemplate... funny, but sad.
how delightfully one-sided
Thank you, Miss Snark, for linking to this.
