My idea of improving passengers was that we'd be given works of philosophy to read and Bach cantatas to listen to as we sailed through the Norfolk countryside, not losing weight as a result of having to walk because the bus didn't show :cry:

From the school of anatomically challenged fiction:-

OK, these aren't typos, so I'm probably being very naughty posting them here. But...what is it with some of the writers' guidelines that are knocking around lately??!?

Here are a couple:

"xxxxx Press publishes literary fiction. These are books such as The Secret Garden or Moby Dick. They don't have a speculative element, they aren't fantasy, but they aren't real accounts either. That makes them literary fiction."

And another spotted today...

"Any genre will be accepted as long as it is in the horror genre."

Oh, my. :?
