What does it mean to have an anonymous pity blog to make fun (affectionately) of your rejectors? Does it mean you deserve the karma of having anonymous commenters who torment your regular bloggers (see comments on link)? Probably. Certainly the agents and editors whose name have appeared on this blog haven't been thrilled to headline here. So, maybe it is a little of the medicine that I am dishing out.
But if indeed I deserve a thrashing, others here do not.
Innocent writers who come around looking for company should be able to lick their rejection wounds in a safe environment and get some support for recovering from the harsh edges of the literary world. Therefore, I'm asking that you who blog here aggressively, please tame your savage selves and be gentle around the wounded.
I know that this goes against the freedom of the blogging world, but it's been a little rough around here lately. And I think it's been at the instigation of one or two peeps. So, just put a lid on the name-calling and insults and the weird entitled attitude, and we'll all be fine.
Oh, and if you want to bash, go ahead and bash me. I'm used to it and probably deserving.
