Dear Writers:

I received a query letter last week from an aspiring novelist who does not know how to spell. She wrote "summit" when she meant "submit." She wrote "habbit" when she really meant "habit."

This is really unacceptable. How can she possibly get an agent?

Please buy and use the following books:

1. Elements of Style by Strunk and White
2. A Dictionary
3. A Thesaurus

Unacceptable? I am so fed up with agents, It is my belief that the writers of the world would be better off without them. Let me see you write a book. Have you ever thought that maybe that woman will be the next Anne Rice or Stephanie Mayer? That would be tuff luck, I am sorry, "tough" luck on your part. :)
