Yep, again! I mailed my manuscript to another publishing company. I had a Skype interview with the very nice Mr. Edward Andrews and it went very well. He told me to go ahead and mail him the manuscript. I was elated! I packaged it all up, taking my time to make sure everything was in order, checking all in the cover letter, checked and rechecked everything on the outside of the envelope. Mailed it off Priority and with tracking numbers because I was not going to have this one lost like the other. I was feeling pretty good until the next day. . .
I was reading the publishing site once again just to familiarize myself with them when suddenly I noticed the man's name at the bottom. This is how I must have looked. . .
Yikes! The man with two first names. I had the sinking feeling that I addressed my cover letter and the envelope to a Mr. Edwards. Sick, sick, sick to my stomach. I decided it would be best to immediately e-mail him and hope he found it amusing. I apologized for turning his name around and asked for forgiveness. I haven't heard back yet. I'm praying he just hasn't checked his e-mails yet or it was just so silly, he laughed and thought nothing more. Haven't we all messed up people's names at one time or another? Haven't we?
I thought, I may be a goofball but I'm not an idiot. Something told me to go do a google search on this eight letter word. Here is what came up on my screen. . .
total idiot, someone who lacks any intelligence at all.
