These handy tips will guarantee any writer instant failure in their dealing with any editor, publisher or competition organizer. If you wish to collect rejection slips forever follow the points closely. 

1.    Always treat the editor like a stupid idiot. Point out the obvious, tell hir what rotten stories/articles/poems/reviews s/he publishes  and give hir tips on how to run hir magazine.

2.    In the same helpful vein always include m/f on each page and tell hir on the first page that it means 'more forward'. S/he would never have guessed from the bunch of pages s/he was holding that there were more than one to read.

  • Tizzie

    There's no slavery in the Yorkshire Dales, not in 1887, not ever. But loving families use artful schemes to enslave the innocent. Twenty nine year-old Tizzie is such an innocent. She has worked herself down to skin and bones as a dairymaid on the farm of her dear brother, Jack, his Scottish wife, Maggie, their three boys and one girl, Agnes. Expert at many things, though not in spotting conniving entrapment, Tizzie longs to see that young Agnes will not suffer her spinster fate. In trying to help Agnes find an education and avoid a life of drudgery in their male-dominated world, Tizzie begins to suspect and then uncover Jack and Maggie's treachery, and the family's plots to enslave and use up Agnes too. With only her wits to guide her, Tizzie tries to right years of wrongs and set Agnes free.

    It sounds wonderful doesn’t it? All those writers out there in cyberspace, surely there must be some kindred souls with whom you can link and share your work? It’s a blissful idea.  Just checking in at www.egroups.com and searching under the Arts section turns up a plethora of groups. Be cautious. You can end up with your creative spirit so depressed that you’ll find it hard to write for a while. On the other hand pick the right group and your writing can benefit amazingly.
