writer-bombWhen it comes to making strong submissions, you know we’ve got your back.

But there are some writers out there who don’t have the guidance (or common sense) that it takes to be taken seriously by agents and editors.

Case in point: Check out this guy who compelled an agent to call the bomb squad because of his submission tactics.

You might say this guy really bombed this one…

Because it’s the manuscript that’s supposed to be explosive…

And it’s his career that went up in flames…

Okay, we’ll stop.

You can go read now.

    Talk about extremes! My writing coach and I agree – be a ‘low-maintenance’ submitter.

    Hmm. Maybe he should have strapped the pages to a vest and walked into the office in person! (That’s what I pictured when I saw the headline).

    I hope that wasn’t his only copy of that screenplay. You almost feel sorry for the doofus.
