The tenth rejection

Thou shalt not think too highly of yourself
Thou shalt not write such utter pelt
Thou shalt not write poems about your pathetic frustrations
Thou shalt not steal so blatantly from the last book you read
Thou shalt not irritate the reader with long sections of introspective stream of consciousness that says nothing about the human condition and everything about your apparent lack of imagination
Thou shalt not wake up and realise it was all a dream
Thou shalt not use twenty words where one will do
Thou shalt not use clumsy adverbs
Thou shalt not assume the reader is your friend
Thou shalt not keep sending me this barrage of turgid crap

About Roy Smith

Roy Smith lives in the Medway Towns, where he works with young people and spends a lot of time writing nonsense and enjoying himself. Most of his writing happens at night and other inconvenient moments, when he is regularly interrupted by his dog and the desire to play old video games.
