I'm Insane by notquitenglish on 18 November 2004 12:40am
 
I really am. And to prove it, I'll tell you what I just did. I just spent an hour sending e-mails to all the publisher's I could find, offering myself as a writer in the hopes of finding one who wanted to contract me. I directed them to my site of course so they could see what I wrote like... anyway I just got a reply that said my letter was "the weirdest attempt to break into print that I have ever witnessed." Well, that's something, eh?

Oh, gosh.
*knocks head against wall*

Yes, follow it up. I made some weird attempts when job hunting and a couple of them led to interviews.

Thanks for the encouragement... trust me, its much needed.

You don't by any chance know any publishers do you? :)

You should be encouraged. That response means somebody DID get your enquiry and DID take a look. Some people never get a response!

Yeah, I guess so. Now I've gotten five responses, which is good I guess...

*sighs and goes to file them with her other hundred and fifty rejections*

Someday... I swear it... I WILL be published!

Damn, you're definitely a nutshell! :D

(kidding)
It's always an unglorious effort, but see the positive side of it - you got a reply. you might get other replies. Keep trying and be persistent.

Go now young grasshopper, do your kendo training! *lol*
