what is the best and sympathetic and also lovely way to send a story to any publisher or any editor?

i recently finished a story with my journalist friend then send it to some editors. at he beginning, i was like a rooster and was gonna wake up the world next morning and i started checking my mail box, cell phone and all other stuff in every minute rotatingly. but the following mornings and nights and days and fortnights there was totaly nothing happened and nobody woke up. then i checked the calender and there was not any two weeks long weekend. so since i am very intelligent person. i sniffed that something was wrong. since i don’t have that much intelligence, i could’t find the reason. cause i at least should have get some ’’no’’ or ‘’you bastard, get the fuck out of my mail box’’ or ‘’you idiot, go cock-a-doodle-doo at far away from my ears’’ reply, let alone big or tiny ‘’yes, we would like to publish this masterpiece!!’’ answer. just a minute ago i suddenly thought that maybe the sleeping one is me. so, (a big one) is there anybody out there to wake me up with his or her “becauses”. and if there will not anybody ’’be’’ to do this favor, i am afraid i ll have to twink myself and hopefully i will scream like ‘’i twink and get the pain, therefore i am’’

thank you very much.
sincerely yours.
j.k.

Jengis, please don’t twink yourself. And remember – if it doesn’t work out, you’ve always got skydiving.

The concept of a lovely way to send a photo story to an editor is a great idea. Maybe with some flowers and/or a box of turkish delight? I’m going to try both in future-might get more pics published that way?
Thanks for making me laugh Jengis, but as Liam says, lay off the twinkies ;-)

Dear liam, JR and Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses, Honoured Members, Ladies (actually there’s not any attendie from this gender) and Gentlemen,

The incident which has occurred made me find my way with your precious advices. First of all, even if there is not any connection with the point, i have to achieve the king cobra technique in jiu jitsu. by the way since i got no idea about jiu jitsu, i have to start with it.
after i make some milages in some martial arts instead of the art of photography, i ll have to find some “solution offering” methods to make my big jump in photojournalism. but i have to be really careful because since i am a 15 year experienced professional skydiver and kinda world class pretty jumper, i only know how to jump downward! then if i want to achieve with this totally uneligible background to land somewhere safe, i have to be very high.

Your Highness

(i’ll think about twinkies)

Jengis, your post reminded me of what happened to my announcement of two concerts in Vienna, Austria, last August. Nobody called me or e-mailed me about the concerts. I did my publicity directly to people at a Japanese festival, too, but I was too shy to actually sell the tickets. I did get more traffic to my website. That was all.

I am preparing for my concert differently this year, by changing the program, adding a photo book, and giving more time to prepare and publicize. The biggest difference would be my target audience. I never had this kind of negative experience before. But I had never lived in a city like Vienna (although I did grow up in Tokyo).

If you believe in your product, you need to change your target or if you need to get the same editor to look favorably on your product, you might need to change the contents. You could always call the editor to find out what happened.

My two cents.

There will soon be a Twinkie with chocolate creme filling. I’m thinking that could be the solution to all problems.
