Since I've been devoting most of my non-Seth time to this project, I haven't really had a chance to write this week. AND I REFUSE TO NOT WRITE AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK, BECAUSE THAT IS JUST A DOWNWARD SPIRAL. It'll turn into two weeks and then the next thing you know, Craig will find me crying in a corner, desperately scribbling on post-its, and begging the keyboard to "please, just take my dictation."
No time for a nice, full, cohesive post. Here's the hodgepodge of my brain.
Maroon 5's "Payphone."
I'm at a payphone
Trying to call home
All of my change
I've spent on you
Um, Adam? We don't really "do" payphones here anymore, so stop feeding all of your change to the (obviously) out-of- order relic on the corner. In fact, you shouldn't even touch that thing. TO THE DISINFECTANT AISLE.
|Oh Adam, honey, no.|
^^^^ This is going to happen, and it's going to be epic . . . possibly an epic fail. (Should that happen, there will be pictures. Ooooooh the pictures there will be.)
Yes, I'm deliberately not getting into any details of the story--and if you have your suspicions, feel free to ask me but NOT in the comments. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then no worries. Once I get it published somehow, somewhere, you can read it. But yes, I have absolutely no faith in the pitch getting accepted pretty much anywhere I'd like it to because blogs/sites/etc. people have actually heard of reject me on a regular basis--and by reject me, I mean I never hear from them, PERIOD. (Busy sites don't have the time to send you a nice form, "sorry but you suck" letter like colleges do. Of course, you also pay to apply to colleges so the least they could do is throw a little official letter head and toner your way.)
I mean, how am I supposed to emulate all those authors who kept their rejection letters and then framed them when they became famous? DAMN YOU INTERNET.
Have a good weekend. I'll be sitting in my new chair, zombified in front of my monitors, muttering something about pronoun-antecedent agreement and "DON'T COLLEGES TEACH THESE KIDS ANYTHING ANYMORE?"
