Allow me to save you some time
« on: April 29, 2010, 07:34:50 PM »
Dear Agent,






Sincerely yours,
EvaBrick

P.S. Since I strongly suspect that you don't read these things before you reject them, I just left the page blank.

Enclosed: Sample chapter and SASE

Hee hee, how about one called "Allow me to save MYSELF some time"?

Dear Sheilah,

It was a genuine delight meeting you at the Wallsingharrowbrookhavenburyshire Writers Conference! I have followed your work avidly and I am very enthusiastic about the "Message to Writers" you posted at your website. I took to heart the advice you gave me at the Conference and re-worked my novel, A Touch of Kindness. I feel it is now ready for the market.

After careful consideration, I have decided not to offer it to you for representation.

Best,
Cathy S

Haaa....methinks we're just as snarky as agents, only we do it here instead of on our blogs.
May your words live forever.

That's funny right there.
Yes, I think I can write my way out of a paper bag.  But, why?  It is warm and safe in here, and I have snacks!
