Happy Christmas, Writers

From Black Books, the incomparable Dylan Moran on rejection.


  1. HA HA HA HA HA!

    I was SO waiting for that ending. You can tell that was made by a real writer. That's so exactly how our life works. And the 'pick yourself back up and keep going' message is, alas, the one we need drilled into us constantly.

    On that note, I finished proofing Wild Children. Your silence made me suspect that reading was one of the many joys lost in your screaming holiday obligation nightmare! You want me to send you the proofread version, which contains about half the commas and applies them more systematically? (among other little fixes)

  2. Oh, yes, please send the proofread version. I was more than a third done (with note cards and everything) before the holidays got away from me. It was like a perfect storm of stuff to do. I also wanted to go over query package stuff. (which was the next step). Hopefully I'm on track to be back on track, or close to it....

  3. Note cards?! Woman, yer terrifying me! Your order for a proofread version is now filled. I hope you're enjoying the book!
