You wonder how long it would take if they DIDN'T use form letters...

>> Wednesday, May 30, 2007

My friend Genetta from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Midsouth Region recently got a form letter rejection in the mail from a publisher. Like most writers, I can sympathize. But Genetta's included this line:

"It is my sincere hope that use of this form letter will reduce our response time to as short a period as possible."

Which is funny, because she submitted the book one year and three months ago.
