Today, I bought a book by a #1 bestselling author, hoping it would distract me from having my manuscript rejected, as well as learn what made their book so successful. Now I realize I need to say stuff like, "I wish I had great boobs (hehe... boobs)" to get my works published. FML

Well I hope things get better for you.

What? I'm so confused by this FML...

LOL Nice Twilight Reference @7

Change that last b.

what the hell is so confusing about the FML??

Eloquence isn't appreciated enough these days

The line "to get my works published" was added to this FML almost immediately after it was posted, however, I commented when the FML ended at "(hehe boobs)"

Keyman, why don't you try to post a new comment instead of replying # 1 all the time?

Because my comments all pertained to the comment on #1. I could ask you the same thing, Mr. Hypocrite.

I can't belive I'm saying this, but thank you mods. That was just annoying.

Well that sucks (hehe sucks)

Original ! (hehe original)

Or going to a magical school where you're suddenly somebody. Because everyone wants to be someone.

I'm sorry but Harry Potter is far superior to Twilight. JK is actually a wonderful author, whereas Stephenie Meyer seems to think just because she owns a thesaurus, she too can be an author.

I posted words then continued to open a parenthesis, signify laughing then repeating a word, just to close the parenthesis before it went mainstream......

A thesaurus she doesn't ever use

On the up side, you did get something published, even if it was an FML.

121 good point always awesome to be an optimist. Just talk about sex in your book always riles up the readers and you're guaranteed a number of audience.

Btw that was directed to 69.

That's from The House Of Night isn't it? Zoe is always saying stuff like that. Also I've read the series several times.

Lol this is number 1 and so am I !

You're an idiot.

some great book.

Gaah my phone is jacked! I heart booobies! I was trying to say!

Sounds like you were in the Bestselling TEEN section OP. Try the adult section to get your mind off things.

abby, it saddens me to admit that the "adult" section of the bookstore is no better. If I see my sister read another one of those 'shopaholic' or 'something blue' books I'm going to shoot an arrow right though it.

Dude. This guy probably just SUCKS. Timothy Zhan an KJ Anderson and his wife have no problems.

Wait, when did this Fml go from books to boobs??

I know right? I'm very confused what this fml is about

Um, guys, she was quoting the book. " " that's what those things called quotation marks tend to symbolize. She was pissed cause something so shallow and retarded could get published and be a too seller. While her manuscript was rejected..

...what book was this? O_o

Probably some shit by Stephenie Meyer.

House of night by p.c cast. It's still about vampires though.

LMFAO Figures.

Ooh I thought it was House of Night. That sentence sounded familiar. But yeah, House of Night is actually pretty good. Much better than Twilight, anyway.

I think it was Snookie's book.

53 & 59 I luuv those books well I did in 5th grde I still read them tho

Anything is a better read than Twilight. But as a fire starter, nothing burns longer or brighter, except maybe Lord of the Rings and a couple of Stephen King titles (Stephen King is great, but "Needful Things" and "Dreamcatcher" had a huge 400 page buildup for an awesome climax, then it just flatlined.)

It was the first book (MARKED), when Zoey first entered the house of night. She was talking about Nefert's "great boobs" and how she wanted them.

83- Waaaaay back then, huh?

Can't go wrong with boobs, I'm not complaining.

Also, boobs are always great in books because you decide what they look like.

Bumpy and lumpy

If it's a picture book, such as National Geographic or Playboy, then you're kinda stuck with what you got.

Op means that in order for her to have a best seller she needs to write sleazy books.

No shit Sherlock.

Or get on Oprah, who can mind control viewers to compulsively buy crap.

Who was asking?

EnEl_Infierno 15

#100 #110 Alot of you missed alot when the fml was posted, it was actually edited right after it was posted because apparently nobody was getting it, keyman was one of several, and apparently some were still grasping as to what the op was even after several others and myself explained it. for example read comment 16 and his replys, and even now some still don't get it.

EnEl_Infierno 15

#82 that's just wrong. lol.

i can't understand this FML no matter how many times i read it... Unless it's just me.

Ilikethenamesam 3

I don't understand why he's being thumbed down.. I don't understand it either. I'm sure lots of people don't. I didn't see you explaining it Pablo

EnEl_Infierno 15

It's not just you... I dnt get it either

Oh thank you 91 I see now. I thought op said (hehe boobs) as something random

slushpup9696 12
