I have been writing to agents and publishers for years now. I was embarrassed yet unable to give up. So this one fine day this brilliant idea hit me wherein I could write begging letters again and again yet keep my pride intact! this is how it went and the reply I got:
Dear Mr. Agent ,
I feel miserable because I have to keep writing to you regarding my manuscript. I feel ashamed and unhappy. But what to do I have to ask you to look just one more time into my manuscript. even though every cell in my body rebels. I beg on bended knee that you forgive me but please do the needful.
P.S : I felt so terrible, I ran after the mailman who picked this letter from the Mailbox. I wanted to take this letter and burn it. I prayed that I could get it back and burn the letter. But it was too late. The mailman had already taken my letter.
A few days later I received a letter from the agent. It read:
Your prayers were answered. Your letter never came!
