From Today’s Email

COMPLAINT FROM FRIEND #1
Remember that [Literary agency name redacted] [contest name redacted] we entered? Well, I just got a reply from them that said, “Sorry, this contest ended 2 months ago.”

The following replies have come to mind:

  1. The straight forward approach. “I know it you dumb asses; that’s why I sent it two months ago.”
  2. The contrite approach. “Oh my, I had no idea you wouldn’t accept 2 month late submissions. Please forgive me for being so stupid.”
  3. The flattering approach. “Actually, I did send this to you two months ago, but, of course being such a large, well-respected agency, it is understandable that you wouldn’t have had time to get all of the submissions read in a timely manner. Thank you for doing your best.”
  4. The indignant approach. “Well, you certainly have a lot of nerve. If you had even considered noticing when my submission was emailed to you, you might have had the brains to also notice that it was sent over two months ago.”

Personally, I like the straight forward one the best. Burning bridges is right up my alley.

Signed,

Your Writing Friend
