Letter Twelve

February 12, 2008

Dear Editor:
Thank you for the short note illustrating why I should stop writing and jump naked into a pit of fire. Do you recommend I take my crazed loved ones with me?

While my kids smear me with lamp oil, let me ask why you think a short dog story has nothing to do with a publisher of dog stories? Your comment, please keep in mind that our focus is on dog stories makes me want to bite the hand that feeds and not let go. Further, we always need to see the work itself to decide if it's right for us makes me want to clamp down hard and gnaw through bone. Since you told me to query first, is this your cutesy way of requesting the manuscript?

While my spouse shaves my head and widens the barbeque pit, I look forward to hearing from you.

These are the words of GREAT writers! My advice on the BBQ pit idea - Burning Man is already happening.

You are kind. I would never attempt to outshine - or outflame -Burning Man.
