Hey gang -

I am volunteering this week at a Film Festival and was doing some bartending at the Opening Night Reception. Joan Chen, the actress, was there to promote her film. I thought it was a funny little brush with fame, so I wrote up a brief piece about it, and submitted it to McSweenys.net as I thought it fit their house style. I got the rejection letter via e-mail the next day. Fastest rejection yet.

So I posted the piece and the rejection letter on my blog. I figure rejection is as much a part of writing as being published, so I may as well document both the letter and the rejected piece.

If you want to read either, they are on my blog, click on link below.
