Rejections not funny, but this is!



Sigh...I just got another rejection letter, and while it was nice, and I am really excited because I am going up to Idaho--to hear the agents that requested a partial of my book speak, it is still hard. Sometimes I wonder if it is really worth it. I love to write. I won't stop, but I find myself working so hard on this story to make it right for someone else when I love the story as it is. Oh well we must please the masses I guess. But even rejection could not stop me from laughing at this great classic movie. They really knew how to make them back in the day. The movie is called THE SECRET OF SANTA VITTORIA. It is based on the book by Robert Crichton.

When they hear that the Nazis are coming to town to take their wine, they decide that they must hide it. Anthony Quinn is delightful as Mayor Bombolini in this witty, but heart warming story of overcoming injustice by a dictatorial power. The head Nazi is played by the amazingly talented Hardy Kruger (check him out in Flight of the Phoenix). I watched this with my mom and sister and we laughed the whole way through. There is nothing like hearing my mom with her thick German accent (which of course I can't hear) say she enjoys movies about "those evil Germans". Good times!

So the next time you are feeling rejected, pick up a good movie and laugh it up. It is true what they say, laughter really is the best medicine.

Oh, no! I feel your pain. But it's good to seee your the type of gal who keeps on going and going like the Energizer bunny! You're a GREAT inspiration.

Now I'm gonna have to watch this movie...:)

I think it pretty exciting that someone is interested in a partial of your novel! That's cause for BIG celebration!!
