I could not resist sharing this YouTube clip of a writer handling/not handling rejection of his latest novel. I’m told it is from a British comedy series, Black Books, starring Bernard Black. There is a little bit of language that some might find offensive, though nothing terribly “blue,” so be advised.
Reminds me once again of one of my favorite movie lines from A Knight’s Tale when Chaucer tells some bad guys: “I will eviscerate you in fiction. Every last pimple. Every last character flaw. I was naked for a day. You will be naked for eternity.”
