We Have a Winner!!! 01/17/10
Your piece was original and thought provoking and quite frankly one of the best things I've ever read. However, if we were to publish it, then it would encourage other talented writers to bombard us with their stories.Winner: Mike Trippiedi
You have to know someone in this business to get ahead and since you don't, then I'm afraid our little private club is off limits to you.
Don't you do your research? To be successful in this business, mediocre is the route to go. Why do all of you writers insist on being original?
I have many friends in the industry and if I were to let you and the other talented writers in the door, then my friends would be out of work and how do you think that would go over?
I have to think of my small little circle, so you can just take your original, thought provoking works and go the self publishing route.
And just between you and me - those are the best books and magazines. And if you market them well, you won't need to be in our private club.
Good luck and happy writing.
Reason: Some of the writing I see is so mediocre that this has to be true.
