May I propose to my fellow writers, a new annual award to be given for the
most rejections received during each calendar year. To be known as "The
Woody," after the redoubtable, world's most prestigious agency, this "Most
Prestigious Award" is to be a reminder that persistence pays off. In
respect to the Agency, and in accord with it's apparent philosophy,
candidates need to send a tally of actual and otherwise ("Had I sent this
manuscript out, it might have been rejected" or "Had I finished this piece,
and been able to afford the postage, ....") Publishers' Rejections.

Other writers will probably have better ideas, or none at all. Hence, your
views are solicited on such topics as: object of the prize, name of the
prize, who may apply, methodology, judges, how much to bill the
recipient(s), etc. Please reply publicly. My e-mail can't take any more
reminders of my having fun, instead of working.

Humbly submitted,
Dr. Flabbo Spirk
Spokesperson for Woodshed Writers Agency
"No manuscript so poor as to not receive our full attention. Cash with ...."

Uh, perhaps one and the same, in some quarters?

Do you like to "submit," Stan? What do you like to have make a "false"
impression? Is there a connection? Are you referring to some sort of
fetish? What does that have to do with a "Woody"?

Listen, if we're giving out an award called "The Woody", I think it should
be either for the person who most excites the other posters on this
board... or the biggest prick (behavoriallly speaking) in the group. Let
the nominations begin!

Rick,

YOU'RE easily confused!? You should be in MY head looking out.

As confused as a baby in a topless bar?
