I feel like chicken tonight…

It’s amazing how many calls for submissions state “Please, no more stories about rapist-murder-cannibals.”

How many do they receive? One? Twenty? How many is too many? Is three about right?

Who are all these people trying their hand at a bit of rape-murder-cannibal fiction? Perhaps it’s just one dear old lady*, the kind who offers you Werther’s Originals when you knock on her door, a veritable Barbara Cartland of the subgenre with 786 under her belt…

*It’s not me.

WRITING TIP: You’re best off not writing rape-murder-cannibal fiction.
