A Girl and a Gun, How Tough Could It Be?

Are you discouraged because the query letters for your novel keep coming back with the words "not for me" scrawled across the top?

Or torn into tiny pieces?

Hey, you're thinking. Maybe I oughtta try film scripts. They say all you need to make a good movie is a girl and a gun. Anything else is just window-dressing. What could be easier?

WELL, send a bad query to Hollywood, here's what could happen. Mr. Anonymous Big Time Agent could read your query, bust his gut laughing, and POST IT AND MAKE FUN OF IT ALL OVER HIS BLOG.

You may have seen this before; I hadn't, and consequently I spent WAY TOO LONG at his site this morning. Enjoy.
