A Vast Public Collection of Literary Rejections
He also looks like he would beat you arm-wrestling. Okay, not you, me. One.
WHY doesn't he have a book deal yet? What's the deal with THAT? I would bet a dollar that it's pronounced "AppEL" accent on the last syllable. But maybe there's a third possibility: "App_" with the "le" being almost silent, sort of French, like.And he still can't muster a smile.
I think he's awesome. Like him more and more everyday. I'm not crazy about his work, but I am in absolute awe of his energy. More power to him.And I say it with accent on the last syllable.
Appel. Like lapel. I knew someone in college with that last name, although it was spelled a little differently. And it was pronounced to rhyme with a piece of men's clothing you might put a flower in if you, for example, won every literary prize in the universe. Anyway, she was also a great arm wrestler, landing the guy who went to Yale Law School two years before she did (she wouldn't go near you if you had even a hint of a cold right before exams.) She wasn't actually a bad person at all, just very, very focused.
someone needs to call this guy out!hmm. maybe it should be me.
I sent him a note.
Finally, what I've been waiting for. The appearance of Appel.
We shall see.
(It was worth repeating.)
