Daily Blogg: Held captive by my own tallent

Genius such as mine needs to be shared...

...*cough* ok stop giggling at the back you lot I'm being serious here. I have been tasked with editing a compiled series of poetry and short storeys from "new and innovative" young poets and writers. As a member of the editorial staff i have the privilege of adding some of my own works to this book to stand alongside the winners of such awards as young poet of the year and the Rising star award for publishing.

This has left me somewhat busy and almost frantic with worry over my own somewhat lacking ability to wrestle with my mother tongue in a poetic fashion to the same effect as my depressingly talented and esteemed peers frankly awe inspiring and often melancholy musings so i have been polishing my own limited talent with blood sweat and tears in the wavering hope that my own works wont become a blot on the landscape of this marvellous publication.

Now whatever i submit will inevitably have to be scrutinized by my fellow members of the editorial staff prior to first print but i have had it noted that some of my vocabularian insanity's have peaked the interest of a relatively unknown publishing house known as "Awkward Duck publications" (well i never herd of them before now so i presume there new) who would be willing to do me a very short run on paperback of my collected shorts and poems for advertising purposes so im in a somewhat dazed state of mind at the moment and am working like a slave to get things toghther while doing my usual freelancing and this part time editing work for my current employer.

Stay tuned for a How too tomorrow when i get a chance to get home on my own computer (where im not blocked from youtube by the stupid staff router) and i can get out of this stupid monkey suit and tie.
