Picked up this little gem on a couple of my writer loops last week. Almost drowned on my ice tea because I was laughing so hard. As they say, been there, heard that, got the bruises from banging my head against the wall. But this scenario is soooo true!
Watch at your own risk. Don’t be drinking anything!
Fortunately, I was never THAT naive about the publishing business. I knew right from the get-go that getting published was hard work and luck, not necessarily in equal proportions. That’s why I went to classes, workshops, conferences, etc. And because the business is always changing, it’s why I keep going to classes, workshops…well, you know.
But there seem to be a lot of people who think there is some magic to getting published. And I’ve heard ALL of these clichés that the wannabe author says. Have to admit…I’ve never told the clueless wannabe about going to my car and getting a gun.
But it sounds like a good idea. They need to be put out of my misery.
