S is for...
This is what writers do to their mailboxes after receiving an ugggglllly form rejection. :-)
Sad. How writers feel after reading a form rejection and before sabotaging their mailboxes.
Schedule. Writers sometimes schedule time with their computers. *writes reminder to schedule time*
The art of self-editing haz to be learned. Uh-huh. And a writer MUST turn off the inner editor while writing the first draft.
Self-editing makes writing better. More exciting. Eliminating all unnecessary words. And I always find a lot of those. Have I mentioned my love affair with the word was? *frowns*
This is what writers who are in the KNOW do to their query/cover letters. Recipe: dump a huge amount of sparkly glue into the envelope. And won't that editor be surprised when she opens the envelope and out falls the sparkly glue all over her new outfit. She won't soon forget you, I'll tell you that much. My pal and your pal, Sharon M. had an added touch. She recommends a nice red lipstick kiss. She says, "that way they know you are a serious writer." I see Sharon knows where I'm coming from. *giddy*
