How Not to Submit Your Writing: Beatles Edition

Had to share this wonderful and absolutely accurate tweet, created by Jennie Goloboy and riffed on by Lars Doucet. Writers, take note:

Of course, for the sake of editorial nitpickery and Beatle fanatacism, I have to say that the author of this query letter ought to be J.P. McCartney. But in my own mind, I fan-wank this oversight by noting that, as the letter’s author seems terribly insecure, it’s possible that he signed his literary friend’s name to try to increase his chances of getting his query looked at. (John did write a couple of books, after all.)
