Poet/Artist/God's Wife Looking for a Literary Agent or Publisher
Date: 2010-02-04, 10:19 am EST
Reply to: email@example.com
I have a wonderful poetry book, creative, wild images and a really good magical story to tell.
[You have a poetry book—um, with images and a story?]
I am looking to sell my poetry book with images and then my story
[So you have a poetry book with images...and you also have a story in an undefined form. And for some reason you need to sell the poetry before you sell the story...to "someone." That's a bit confusing, but whatever; it's not like you're claiming to be a wordsmith...]
I am God's wife, and the story is about our life together.
It's got spirituality, love, tragedy, adventure, crime, violence,
music, sex, a little bit of everything.
[Actually, you left out drugs.
But that's okay; at this point, drugs are heavily implied...]
I have a diary of our letters to each other, and the poems are like letters I wrote to God in a creative way.
[As opposed to the non-creative steamy porn that you actually wrote to your stud boyfriend God.]
This will be a big hit, it is a beautiful story, you won't be disappointed.
[The odds are good. God's last book was a huge bestseller.]
God is a black man on Earth and a musician. I have proof.
[It's a hip-hopera DVD titled Trapped in the Closet.
Thing is, God turned insane in 2000. (Which explains a lot...)]
This is a great story. I am also a great writer and poet and artist.
[And 100% real. You can check out Kristie's website at http://www.harttherapy.blogspot.com.]
Need Urban Ghost Writers (Metro Atlanta)
Date: 2009-11-13, 6:33PM EST
Reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for creative ghost writers with excellent grammar skills and ideas.
[Because that's what makes a writer great: killer grammar, and concepts.]
Male and females are encouraged to apply.
[Translation: Sorry, I don't work with hermaphrodites.]
Serious inquiries only...Please do not respond if you are not serious!
[Translation: I'm sooo tired of people making fun of me...]
Writer Wanted for Book to be Published (Hartland, WI)
Date: 2009-09-29, 1:52AM CDT
Reply to: email@example.com
I am writing a book and need someone who can
help me with writing my story.
I am seeking someone who is spiritual in nature
and believes that by reading this
you are the person designed to write it.
Give me a call at 262-xxx-xxxx and introduce yourself.
[Hello. I have been designed to write your book.
Thank you for fulfilling my destiny.
The days, months, and years of constantly reading
Craigslist ads in search of purpose have finally
been rewarded. I am eager to start work on
our spiritual instant classic I Was Born
to Ghostwrite Someone Else's Book.]
Writers for Wheelchair Book (San Diego—Mission Valley)
Date: 2009-09-28, 10:41AM PDT
Reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Easy Life Inc. is looking to write a book about purchasing a new wheelchair.
We are looking for 2-3 writers to provide 200 pages of content each.
[In other words, we want a 600-page book...about buying a wheelchair.]
We want fresh ideas that relate to buying a wheelchair.
[Idea #42: Raise cash as drug mule.
Cops will never suspect crippled old coot like you.]
Please send a sample or two of your writings, your rates,
and 2-3 BRIEF topics that you would contribute to this book.
Writings will be submitted weekly for originality
and to assure you are going in the right direction.
[If you're going in the wrong direction, we'll grab
hold of your wheelchair and point you the right way.]
We want you to exhaust any and all ideas
that go into purchasing a motorized wheelchair.
[At which point the Seventh Seal will be broken,
commencing the Apocalypse.]
Once you have exhausted that
go into manual wheelchairs,
then walkers, crutches, etc.
[And after you've exhausted all hope of support,
we want to you to crawl on your belly before us.
Crawl like the worm you are.]
Previous SEO experience a plus. Local to San Diego preferred.
In the subject line: WHEELCHAIR
[Or just: END OF THE WORLD.
Take a look at our website at http://www.powerchairatnocost.com.
Compensation: $750 to $1,500 DOE
[Again, this ad is 100% real. If you have
fresh ideas about buying a wheelchair...]
