Give Thanks for Our Ability to Laugh

What am I thankful for?   I’m not only thankful for the fact that I get to work in an industry I love, I’m thankful that writers possess the ability to laugh at ourselves and what we do.

In that spirit, check out “Tom’s Glossary of Book Publishing Terms.”  This dictionary is full of humorous takes on various elements of the business from Galleys to Letterhead and Trade Paperbacks to Self-Publishing.

Deadline:  Something that virtually assures a day composed of computer problems.

Submission:  The step that must be taken before that embarrassing typos reveal themselves.

Working from Home:  A process which makes you the easiest person in the family to find in the event of a non-emergency.

Any one else care to write one?

Thank you to agent  Janet Reid for blogging about Tom’s Glossary.
