Too true

Like any writer I could wallpaper the house with rejection slips, so the following quote from Ring Lardner made me chuckle:

A good many young writers make the mistake of enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope, big enough for the manuscript to come back in. This is too much of a temptation to the editor.

Perhaps I should stop sending SAEs out with my manuscripts?  Then again, I doubt it’s really that easy…
