Writer, on writing. September 25, 2013

Posted by Elizabeth Schechter in silly, writer on writing.

A friend asked for an example of how to write a cover letter for a short story submission. This is what I came up with in the five minutes before I had to leave to go off to pick my son up at school. Now it’s a good format, but given what I WROTE here, I’m wondering just where my head is today:

Dear Mister Thus-and-Such,

In a world where chocolate is forbidden, Farfel the Dog has to discover how to liberate the cocoa masses before the cookies burn.

Attached is my short story, Theobroma Nights, which is complete at no words.

I am a very silly person from Florida, and I never intend to write this story.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.


The  really funny part is that, in the time since I posted this to Facebook, several people have asked me to actually WRITE the thing!
