What I'm going to do

Is to copy over some of my recent posts from the old blog onto this one to kind of get me started. Otherwise it feels like I'm starting from scratch. And that's not bueno kids.

Here's one called Best rejection yet

Topic: Writing
Came from The Paris Review last week. It was a standard, flimsy rejection note that says:

Thank you for submitting your manuscript to The Paris Review. We regret that we are unable to make use of it at this time.

Your sincerely,
The Editors.

What makes it special and makes me feel great is that someone printed, in blue pen:

Dear Mr. Portocarrero:

That's a lot of letter to be spelling out. Bless this person's heart.
