Research Rejection, Part III

rejection 3 I posted the idea for this blog on Facebook wanting some comments and asking if other authors had experienced rejection. My thanks to David Schlosser and Bob Dunbar who responded with an example each. I can't make up this stuff so I'll let them tell their short stories in their own words:…

Selling book?

I just finished my first book and sent the manuscript to my publisher. I'm still not very positive about how my work gets distributed to the public. I know he told me that 90% of getting it marketed would be my responsibility. Fine. And he would set up Internet sites so future readers can download the book. Okay. But, what about paper sales? How do you go about getting the distributed throughout the nation. Do you contract a warehouse? If I order, say 50 paper backs and 30 hard covers, do I…

Research Rejection, Part II

rejection 2 My first rejection came from a rude secretary in the Quad Cities when I was driving the route Mallory took in Beta. I stopped at a plant that processed meat gelatin. (Yeah, sounds disgusting to me, too) When I asked the secretary if there was a PR person available she told me one didn't exist. When I asked her who might help me, she said he wasn't available. I gave her my name and contact…

WHY I'M NOT WRITING

I'm very adamant on the Internet and elsewhere that I don't believe in the notorious “writers block.” Most former journalists and newspaper people will agree with me. We couldn't couldn't look up at the editor in despair and whine, “I don't know, sir. The words just aren't coming to me right now.” That doesn't fly when there are column inches to fill and lay-out people impatiently tapping their toes. Writers block = pink…

Research Rejection, Part I

rejection 1 I thought about this topic several weeks ago when outlining a chapter to put at the beginning of Mallory Petersen's next adventure, Delta. In the story she meets a classmate about halfway through the story. When I wrote the first draft, I thought the scene worked, but after reading it to a critique group, and discussing it with a friend, I decided I needed to introduce the classmate earlier…

The Continued Suggestion (Subterrain)

All estuaries flow eastbound, and the subterranean rail tracks keep forcing against the estuaries’ grain and dust foundations perpendicularly to them.

 

How can a sane proposition -- a quantification of syntax execution (those squirming cuticles through bonds of regression)-- an excessive reflection, reflexive inspection,

Prove its sanity through continued suggestion?

 

Deductive insurrections stirred in memory,

A rumble, causing sediments…

Like all other aspiring writers, I need help to improve my skills. I value other writer's opinions and would benefit greatly from those who have a lot more experience than I do. Since no one can write in a vacuum, I have joined this community to find such help. Other writers can help me improve in ways that I can't myself. Thanks.

Review Regrets

regrets I wanted to write this on one of the reviews I've done on my other blog, braytonsbookbuzz.wordpress.com but decided instead to write this up as a regular blog. One of the reasons I chose to do it here instead of there is because I initially thought I'd write this at the beginning of one review and it might seem like I was lambasting the author, which, essentially, I am. I could have written up a separate…

WE DIDN'T COVER THIS IN MY TRAINING!

We were in the middle of the vehicle check out; we had just come on duty when the tones had us heading for our seats.



“Medic 42, Rescue 41, respond for a possible DOA, 2027 Taylor Road, time out 0820 hours.”



As we headed to the scene, there are no further updates. Arriving in front of the residence we see a very elderly female standing at the front door, wa…

DID YOUR PATIENT GO TO THE SAME SCHOOL AS YOU?

EMS is an incredible resource and is coming to your emergency with some of the most highly trained and highly skilled individuals along with the latest and most sophisticated equipment.



This being said, it would make sense there would be very few, if any voids in how a patient encounter goes.



There is one area I believe may lack some of this attent…
