18 seconds of suckitude

I’ve been creating short videos lately. Today I made a stop motion video that took 30 minutes to “film” and another 20 to put it all together. Total run time? 18 seconds. Doh.

I’ve got two other posts I want to put up, but I’m waiting to get paid before I post one (thus cementing the validity of the post) and the other one is in a holding pattern because I need to get somebody’s okay before posting what I want to about them.

Oh, did I forget to mention that I’m finally designing a new theme for this place? One word sums it up best: black.

A few months ago, I sent off a short story I’d written to a few magazines and websites. Today I got a letter from one of the publications thanking me for canceling my subscription to them and asking what they could do to get me back.

I think it’s safe to say my story was never read by them.

  1. Funny that you mention sending off stories and all. I took a magazine writing class about 3 or 4 years back and your grade had a minor basing on whether or not you could get published. To make a long story short, in a class of about 24, only 3 could get published by the end of the semester. The teacher wanted to impart on us how hard it was to get published as a whole, and the work behind that. I’ll have to blog it sometime, it was an itneresting experience, to say the least…

    And Black, eh? Get the idea from me or something? 😉

  2. Man, it’s a bitch and a half. I think the worst part comes not in the rejection, but in the utter lack of acknowledgment of your existence, let alone your work.

    I could swallow a stream of rejection letters coming through the mail. But to not even be contacted with a bland “thanks but no thanks” letter just plain sucks.
