Short, sweet, and to the point. Mind you I was writing a bit outside of my area of expertise. I’m not a drag king and have never known a drag king. I had really hoped to have an actual letter, something on letterhead with a stiff off-white envelope. Something I could hold in my hand but alas, I got an email. I guess I was dreamily thinking of Stephen King’s experience from On Writing. He had a nail in the wall that he would impale his rejection letters on, he later upgraded to a spike. That’s all for now, I must change into my call center suit and head to the office.
