Tales From the Slush Pile

This piece in Seattle's alternative weekly The Stranger by The Rejectionist, entitled, "A Good Author is Hard to Find," regales the reader with tales of the misbegotten and miserable that the agent's assistant must contend with. It's fun reading. But it also prompts the question: for those of us (which clearly includes the regular followers of this blog) who can, you know, write, who use proper spelling and syntax and grammar and don't have a hellacious premise, why the fuck is this so hard?

  1. Ugh, I saw that the other day. Truly sucks. Truly.

  2. Who knew the slush pile was so political?

    And your question is the great mystery of my life right now.
