Yummy Proposals

I got a huge proposal package in the mail recently. One marked perishable. You know what that means? That means a yummy bribe. Someone out there has decided that the best way to charm and win me over is to send an amazing box of chocolates along with the proposal. Well I, like almost everyone else, love a good box of chocolate and I always love a gift. But let me tell you, other than making me feel a twinge of guilt, this gift isn't going to do much of anything for you. When evaluating the proposal it's all about the proposal—the writing, the marketability, and whether or not I can sell it. While gifts are always nice, don't waste your money. Instead spend your time and energy making your proposal the best it can be.

And by the way, I prefer all dark chocolate since it's the only kind of chocolate we'll eat at my house ;)

White chocolate here (or chocolate covered cherries) - lol - I think it is funny that someone sent you a gift thinking that they would be selected - hummmm - well I know to put that gift I made away for someone else (only kidding) - I love the sense of humor you have carried out throughout these postings - enjoy the chocolates (perishables need to be eaten) - - E :)

So but after you sign somebody, it's open season on guilt-free gift acceptance, right? :-)

I can't believe people still do that. Don't they know that the preferred gift is a non-perishable twenty-dollar bill?
