On rejection.

Bernard Black's take on rejection, especially for A Cat of Impossible Colour. Thanks to Louisiana, who first posted it on her blog. In other words, I stole the idea from her.

Yay, thank you! I remember this from the DVD of Black Books - have you seen the series? We must have watched the whole thing a dozen times. I love Dylan Moran. :D

A friend of mine wrote me a fake acceptance letter from Lionel Twaddle Esq, Literary Agent, which I am going to frame and put above my desk. It says, among other things, that "one of our senior consultants went so far as to call it 'the greatest work of this generation' before suffering a minor stroke brought on by excitement..." Needless to say, she hasn't read it :P

P.S. Pissmidget! Ha!

"I do hope you will not be disheartened by your sudden violent death"

Brilliant!

Thanks for posting that.

Ooh, I love this. I might have to go seek out the Black Books DVDs. I'd forgotten how good they were.

Thanks for your visit to mine too! Pity they seem now to have pulled the video. Let's hope it turns up again somehwere. A gem.
