oh crazy people

I don't know if any of you have been updated with the writing world or not, but an agent Pam Van Hylckama was attacked by a person who submitted to her, and received a rejection. This person apparently stalked her through her tweets. Then Attacked her outside her kids school. WTF loony! Thank goodness herself and her family is okay.

Yes world, this is an absolute without a doubt NO NO! You can't go around smacking people around or stalking them because you're pissed they said no. Do you know how many people said no to me? 100 + but I'm not turning around lurking on their every move and then planning to attack them. You need to get some thick skin, if you don't have it you should't be in this business or in the film industry or any form of industry where you need to be approved by someone.

If you get so many rejections you can't take it, post it on Amazon. What will it hurt? Nothing. You keep your sanity for the most part, and you won't be in lock up for attacking people.

Okay, we've all been there. Rejection letters come. No one is seeing your wonderful work. No one is understanding, a thing. Your CP's all love it. (hopefully those Cp's aren't family and friends because guess what? They'll lie) Get some real feedback from strangers who will eventually, become friends who won't feed you crap or tell you what you want to hear not what you need to hear. How do you find these people? Writing sites Yalitchat.org is one. Querytracker.com is another. Agentquery.com is another. Become a stalker of knowledge, not of bullying someone into getting what you want. It won't happen.


Happy writing.
