Still smiling after all those tears

If you giggled watching Lara Zielin outrun the editorial letter, you can savor Sarah Rees Brennan's hilarious -- but informative -- take on the same subject. On a recent post to she links to earlier musings on the dreaded letter and getting published. (I briefly removed her link when her site was hacked but all is well again although some things were lost. Very sad.) If you're not a novelist, just imagine constructing your dream home and having the building inspector say, "What's this? I expected Spanish Mediterranean not Victorian Revival." And then he tells you what to do about it. You might consider telling him what he can do with it, but that wouldn't be wise.
