Classic from Slush Pile Hell [7/3/11]:




Dear Slushpile Hell Scum, you think you’re so funny. I wish I knew who you were so I could come mock you and everyone in your little circle of ugliness. I’ve written a fiction novel—a GREAT novel. Do you think I’ll ever submit my manuscript to a CLOWN like you, or ANY of your fellow clown literary agents for that matter? Think again. You’re missing out on MILLIONS of dollars here.
Dear Charlie Sheen, thanks for your email. Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

Luckily I was coffee free at the time. :tongue

For anyone who hasn't read the blog before:

Charlie Sheen has been demonstrably off his rocker in all his public and private dealings for a month now, making him the new Britney Spears.

The situation came into sharp public focus when his ex-wife siezed full custody of their twin boys (little guys, younger than 4) away from him, stating: "I fear Charlie is insane right now."

Somewhere in the mix he was fired from his hit TV show "Two and a Half Men." And he is now responding to ALL of this by posting endless tweets and videos loaded with pompous vitriol and delusions of grandeur, all which only further indicate that he's not mentally right at all at this time.

Due to uchecked mental illness he's destroying himself via his free and ready access to modern interactive media, NO ONE is intervening by taking away his degital-era soap box and megaphone, and we're all laughing at him and contributing to his demise.

Worth repeating:


I will add that I am very torn over my willingness to laugh at Charlie Sheen. I'm ultimately laughing at someone else's destruction. And I have respect for what happened 6 years ago when the Monty Python crew was doing Spamelot on Broadway. They had originally written a handful of Britney Spears jokes into the script, poking fun at how shallow she was. But then, after a year of Spamelot being a hit on Broadway is when Britney Spears finally began to go certifiably psycho. And so they edited ALL the Spears jokes out of the script (and out of all future performances). When asked why, they issued a press release stating: "We have no desire to make fun of a mentally ill woman."

I feel no guilt for laughing at Charlie Sheen because, before he began to go down this dark road, he was still a wife/girlfriend/porn star-beating arsehole.

I'm a little disturbed by how often tiger blood and Adonis DNA have come up in conversation the last few weeks, though.

Honestly? Yes, I've seen query letters like that. I've also seen a writer place an ad in The Literary Review a few years back.

That entry actually reeks of 'I'm going to make millions from self-publishing syndrome.' There are dicks who write letters like that back to agents/editors that have rejected. Some of which bear watching.

There is nothing that I haven't seen on SPH that I haven't seen in the slush pile.

I believe you, it's just this particular entry that feels fake. Every line is calculated to make the writer appear ridiculous to the audience of the blog. Also, why is it directed at SPH? It's the rant of a rejected ego, but SPH doesn't reject people, and I doubt many such people follow the blog anyway. I think this message was a prank mail.

It's not a query; it's a rant at all agents through SPH. And there are unfortunately a few slightly dilusional people out there who think every word they write is golden and no one appreciates it.

SPH is run by an anonymous agent. So he/she DOES send rejections.

The actual name is redacted and SPH is substituted, I'm sure.

Nothing fake about it. If you read many queries, you soon find hundreds wherein every last line makes the writer appear ridiculous to anyone who knows anything at all about writing, agents, publishers, or straw, for that matter. This one is is actually saner than most. FAR, FAR, saner than most.

The kind of queries agents and editors receive, and even more so, the response to rejections they send out, make whoever wrote this one sound like Shakespeare.

What makes the blog good really isn't so much what the writers have to say, but the witty responses.

I don't know how many read the blog has, but just about everyone I know does.

There you have it: all the whys and wherefores of our basic policies and standards; you have yours, we have ours, and ours preside if they're incompatible. Meaning that would be a win/

I've been poking around the "Space Ark" web site and I found one page of postive reviews of the book.

One review in particular is a from ............. an agency???

Here's what that "agency" had to say:




My colleagues and I have now had the opportunity to read and give some discussion to your novel, Space Ark! We are in agreement that it is sci-fi at a high level with all of the requisite ingredients to do well in that niche market. Your writing evokes good visual impressions in the narrative while the dialog is nice and tidy. Some really good writing. I think this should easily find a home with the right book publisher. I am very appreciative you brought Space Ark! to my attention. It is a novel richly deserving of publication.

I think your crap detector is broken. SPH has no reason at all to manufacture such things, and this one isn't nearly goofy enough to be fake.

This is quite likely the least manufactured, and most common such example, I've read yet. I've seen almost exactly this same wording a hundred times. Every editor and agent has. Some years ago, I was fiction editor at a small magazine, and I had to send out a LOT of rejections. It seemed one writer in twenty or so replied in a way nearly identical to this. Almost word for word.

Now, I can't guarantee this wasn't copied from an agent's experience, but I can guarantee this writer is not, in any way at all, unusual or uncommon. Any agent or editor who saves his letters could easily pull out dozens that you would swear were written by the same person.

Far from coming across as fake, this is the most realistic and common example I've seen yet at SPH.

Perks
03-13-2011, 07:13 PM
James, I didn't mean that SPH had manufactured it. I meant that, to me, it looks like the query-er wrote it specifically to land on the blog.

I've read everything on that blog and others and here, there, and everywhere for years so it's not like I'm shocked any more by crazy queries. In this instance, it just looks to me like, fifteen minutes of diluted fame being what it is, someone wanted to see their efforts posted at SPH. Clearly, the writer is familiar with the blog and what makes it up there and steered his pseudo-rant to poke at everything likely to land his little note on that page.

Christine N.
03-13-2011, 10:32 PM
Which would be a good trick, since no one knows who SPH really is. I really don't think this agent signs his/her rejection letters, 'Love and kisses, SPH'.

Of course, if these writers were paying attention, they could probably GUESS who SPH is - unless they send these same ridiculous letters to every agent they query. Which I'd bet even money they do.

ETA: Never mind, I see now that this particular letter was indeed sent to the SPH's actual SPH email, with yes, the intent at either getting on the blog or just venting and blustering and spewing righteous indignation.

Perks
03-13-2011, 10:49 PM
Yeah, that's what I meant. That person sent it directly to SPH, obviously well-acquainted with the purpose of the blog. Then he went ahead and used 'fiction novel', which has to be a gaffe in at least a third of the letters mocked, then dangled his greatness through grandiose language (which accounts for another good chunk of the SlushPileHell alumni) and then attacked the process and industry, making it the trifecta of things-that-will-get-you-posted.

So, it's either someone with a spectacular lack of self-awareness or a tongue-in-cheek exercise. To me, it reads like the latter.

As an editor, I've seen some astounding typos come through as good writing, so I'm not terribly surprised, but still--my eyes.

And before you ask, an example of the bad writing: I was updating some information about a department at work and they had a single-sentence paragraph that was eight lines long. It took me an hour, a white board, and a lot of muttering to figure out what they were actually trying to say.

But this guy? I wouldn't dare try. On the upside, I now have a new tumblr to follow!

I love Slushpile Hell. It is one of the highlights of Monday (some would say the only highlight of Monday :D).

What will I do with my 3000 page 'History of the Klingon Empire'? I've written it in Klingon for Klingons. My spirit guide told me that I have produced a definitive work.
