Still behind the curtain

A couple of days ago, I posted an old column about the writing life and getting rejected. Since I love this topic and since I'm still a bit buried in projects, here's a YouTube repeat from somewhere in the ago. It's one of my favorites.

For those who didn't know, I have an entire site devoted to this drivel if you wanted to hear more of my sad writing chronicles.

Don't have YouTube--going out on a limb here, and guessing that the video is something along the lines of, "You kvetching about submission guidelines."

The only other option I see is to become a stripper and chronicle your life as a stripper--wait, Diablo Cody already did that...

Actually, Zen, it's about how size matters.

Good on you for sending back the same shitty sized slip of paper to them.
I feel that satisfaction you speak of. :)

The size of the submission guidelines? Like, a publisher would be sexier if they are like an NYC phone book?

Funny: my current post is on "Men's Padded Butt Briefs"...

In Jungian philosophy they call that, "synchronicity."
