Custard pies... mmmm... what? Oh, yes, I was writing a review.  Got sidetracked a little.  Can't remember what I was going to say now.  That's it.  Consultants.  Hire external consultants.  OK, they cost a bomb, but they produce lots of pretty charts and handouts, and you could set them onto the recalcitrant authors to bore them into submission, or out of submission... :)

Author's Response: I am glad that you liked it, I have hired myself as a consultant! let me know if you are interested in joining, because i am crap at producing pretty charts and handouts, you could do that part.

sunny33's response: The trick is to realise that the charts don't have to make sense, because no one pays the slightest bit of attention to them anyway.  They are all just wondering when the hell they can get out of there!

Author's Response: too true, looks like you have done this many a times!

LOL!  The title made me do a double take, tee hee.  Hiring an Author?  *Gasp* I can't wait to see how this turns out.  Maybe a vegetable garden should be started.

Author's Response: well if the trip to the vegetable market turns out to be too expensive, NSS, SW_69 and Ladyinthecloak will probably have to start a vegetable garden for the rotten vegetables anyway.
thanks, much appreciated.

Too funny, but as sure as God made little green apples, you can bet someone will take this chapter literally.  It might even be me lol.

Author's Response: Too true, hope the Godess and the High Minions do not get angry with me!

Very witty.  It has that grain of truth in it that highlights the humor even more.  Good job.  It will be fun to see your take on the Admin's point of view.

Author's Response: are you an Admin?
thanks for the review, much appreciated.

Prof M McGonagall's response: No, but I've been a high school English teacher, so I think I can understand a bit about the frustrations of an Admin's job.  *grins*

Author's Response: If you are going to get frustrated with a job, then don't take it on! saying I don't get paid for it, is not good enough, at least in my view. It is like any other job, you cannot have just the good bits and bitch about the bad bits.

Poor, misguided Author.  She looks in all the wrong places for those all-important words.  All she need do is use the most common, banal words, and then click on the "synonyms" feature on her word processor and replace those common words with ones that almost (but not quite) mean the same thing but sound so much fancier.  That's how all the really good writers do it.  No, really.

Also, I love her "unconsciously" rubbing her hands.  So often we do our very best work when comatose.  I do, anyway. ;)

Love the biting satire.  Keep it up.

Author's Response: thank you, appreciate it, coming from you it is high praise indeed!

ahem.  (not to be confused with AHEM!)  this is just as delightful as the first installment.  i loved the image of the poor author trawling all the different pools for the right words.  (and i still sometimes tremble when submitting my work to the Q.)

Author's Response: makes two of us! the dreaded Q, the words to inspire fear in any Author!!
thank you very much

Who would that author be, I wonder? ;)

Author's Response: have a guess!

Hitting the mark. Again. Perfectly. An arrogant, delusional author. Mistaking beginner's faults for craftsmanship. 

(see, how masterfully I fish the ponds? *preens in rightful brilliance*)

Thank you very much for your punch in the guts.

Author's Response: you are getting good at fishing!
thank you very much

Oh my God this is funny.  Blasphemous, but funny I can't wait to see more.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. part 2 has sat in the Q for the last 2 days, eventually someone will get around to validating it. and this with 2 Admins in the house!!!!!

Admin's response: Yes, eventually, dear Author. In the meantime, L to punctuate. The comma should have been at least a semicolon. *back to slaving in the Q*

Author's Response: Response to Admin's response
If I L to punctuate, dear High Minion, who the hell would need you on The Site??

That's absolutely brilliant! Great work, and oh so true!

Signed one of the multitude of unwashed authors *giggles*

Author's Response: please read part 2 and then tell me if you are still happy with the way the authors are depicted!! and don't forget I am one of the multitude of unwashed authors as well!!

thanks once again

Alcina vom Steinsberg's response: I would love to, but I seem to be too stupid to find it... is it one of the other stories you wrote? Which one?

Author's Response: Sorry it is still in the abyss,oh i mean the Q waiting to be validated by one of the Minions.
