Rejected for You, Baby!

I received my second self-rejection today. (Some of you may remember that the previous agent kept my rejection and I didn't get the chance to reject myself.) So, I have one self-rejection still out.


This was a rejection on Curse Me A Story.

Here it is:

(Sung to the tune of Gilligan’s Island Theme Song)

Oh Dearest Author of this tale,

A tale of a dreadful curse

It might have worked out for my list

And vampires would be worse

Unfortunately, I’ve got a heavy load,

And I can’t take any more on

Maybe if one of my clients dies

But by then, you’ll probably be gone. By then, you’ll probably be gone.

Your jokes were music to my ears

I nearly swallowed my tongue

If it weren’t for all those other clients….

Darn it… where’s my gun? Darn it… where’s my gun?

I’ve a list of victims now and you’ll be takin their place

Maybe this guy?

No, he’s so hot.

This millionaire or his wife?

The movie star?

The professor! He’s getting canned!

Soon you’ll make my list!!!

Until then… best regards,



  1. Love it. Did the agents also include a rejection?

  2. Yep... came with a small form rejection business card.

  3. Wendy, you are made of awesome.

  4. Heard the music in my head as I read along! Great job with treating rejection in your own amusing creative way... :)

  5. Hahaha. Love the self-rejection. You are so creative.

    Yea! Another rejection! I know all those partials and fulls were getting you down. :)
    Happy Rejection Day. I loved the song.

  7. That's nice that some of them have a sense of humor!

  8. hahahahaha. LOVE it!

    Of course, I couldn't just read that silently to myself. I had to sing it!

  9. You really are made of awesome. :) Too funny. Plus, I finally perused your playlist over there on the right side, and am way pleased about "My Freeze Ray" and "Still Alive".
