"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
I LOVE the slushmonster. And I hear he gets along very well with sharks ;-)(Seriously, it's a symbiotic relationship. He eats the letters, the shark eats the writers. I'm not sure where the octopus fits in, though.)
Don't forget my Herpet-American assssistant also.
We would never forget your faithful assssssissssstant! This slush monster always gets an "awww!" from me :).
Yipes... so embarrassing. I thought your assistant was a stray tentacle. :-D
The slush monster makes me smile, but the list of Things Not To Send in Slush Ever Again makes me laught out loud EVERY TIME.
I read that blog about how to interpret "Not for me thanks."However, it failed to interpret a "not for me thanks" written by an agent on toilet paper in their own blood.I guess my paper didn't have the right watermark.
The response needs to be more subtle IMO. Try this:Q: "My question is, how does an author figure out if rejections are due to: agent not interested in novellas (word count), weak query, manuscript has a weak opening, weak writing, silly premise, etc, or that the project is altogether unsellable?"A: Yes.
