As we all know, The Famous Author has been sifting through the submission pile at Spinetingler for close to two years now, sometimes asking authors for rewrites, sometimes changing a confusing word, but mostly just reading the story as far as he was able, then clicking REJECT.
It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. Saying no to all those poor writers trying to have someone read their work. Ha, ha, ha. Now TFA is waiting on his own submissions. That's right, our own TFA is sending out short stories and watching -- with typical and well-earned apprehension -- his inbox for rejection or acceptance.
Eat a piece of your own pie, you old curmudgeon!
