I get up this morning, fix breakfast, sit down with it and open the newspaper up to read. And I immediately throw the paper away and dump the breakfast in the trash in disgust.
The first story I read is a about a college student, about to graduate as an elementary teacher, getting a publishing contract from a major publisher. Her first time trying to write something and she gets a contract!
What really pissed me off was she wasn't trying to get published! Her professor gave the class an assignment to write a children's book. She did--and was awarded with a major contract.
And here I've been trying to get a major publisher to look at me since the year after the biblical Eve started wearing dresses! I'm tellin'ya, it's enough to make a grown man want to camel hair shirt and go eat locusts out in the desert.
