A blog about why you don't get published. You can also order Evil Editor's books, Why You Don't Get Published, which collects many of the funniest Q & A's along with hilarious excerpts from the Face-Lifts, and Novel Deviations, which collects the best of the New Beginnings.
1. Running on Empty

We're totally out of queries and openings. Even when more come in we'll have to wait for fake plots and continuations, so we need something to fill space the next couple days. Thus:

Submit a funny scene from your WIP. Up to 250 words. Get a free critique from the Evil Minions. If you don't have a funny scene, submit a death scene or a love scene. I can pretty much guarantee we'll find those hilarious. Or you can just make up a scene, but if you do so Evil Editor should be one of the characters.

You may provide 1 or 2 sentences to let us know what's going on when the scene begins, if necessary. Submit as a comment to this post. I'll compile them into a couple posts for Thursday and Friday.
