This is my writing blog, where I will be shamelessly posting my work. Poems, short stories, flash fiction, extracts from novels...they'll all be here. And if you don't like any of that, just play with the tiger.

Swift work, part two

The kids' manuscript's second foray into the treacherous world of agents lasted 10 days. To look on the positive side, at least this lot didn't purloin my paperclip.
If any agents are reading (ha!), I'd just like to make it clear that these speedy refusals won't make me stop pestering you. You may as well give in now.
That said, I think I may be well on the way to striking the ideal balance between writing and idleness. Given the increasing alacrity with which agents feel compelled to return my work, I will soon be at the happy stage where they proactively post me rejection slips without my needing to take the trouble to send a manuscript. Happy days.

You keep grindin' they boggers down, gal.

Indeed I shall. These rejections just seem to spur on my stubborn side.

There is a lot to be said for consiste(a?)ncy.

Just think how much these rejection slips will fetch on eBay when you are famous!

I like your attitude, John. The trouble is, I have so many of the things that the market will be flooded.
