Happy Birthday Old Friend

What’s shaking, gate? A Happy Anniversary of your birthing.

I have entered the querying trenches as I have 1 completed work and about 7 WIPs on the back burners. You are the one who initially torqued my interest in things literary.

So instead of revving the engine just to hear the cut-out roar, let me just say plant you now and dig you later.

Daniel replies:

Think of you often, and your square dad. For what it's worth I have noticed this writing thing is more a mug's game even than it ever was. Going back pretty nearly forever it starts with trying sell art to business-heads, then the business-heads selling they know not what to actual people. The one making the art is, if fortunate, clueless. However, every time someone wins the big lottery it turns out they've been buying tickets every week for years and years. Others submit manuscripts to publishers. And, as they say, you've got to be in it to win it.
