Lots of Bloggers writing about rejection this week. Here's the list:
- Douglas V. Gibbs, a conservative political writes, discusses getting rejected by agents based on his political views on Political Pistachio, his pretty nutty blog. He says: "I am now once again actively pursuing representation by literary agencies. Now, in this free country of fairness, the rejection letters I am receiving read: "Real page turner, well written, but I cannot represent anything that glorifies Bush's 'illegal' wars." I know a few writers that have gone through the same problem (two of those writers are my guests on Thursday's radio show)." Wow, I have to say I'd side with the agent on this one.
