Editor in Chief
"Rejected."Haruhi said flatly, thrusting the manuscript back."It's no goo~d?"Asahina-san raised her voice to a near-scream,"But I really, really thought about it......""Yup, no good. Totally. It doesn't strike any chords."Leaning back on the chief's desk, Haruhi took the pen that had been on her ear into her hand andcontinued,"First, this introduction is too common. 'Long, long ago, in a certain place......' whatever; that'ssuch a stale and ordinary way to start a story. Give it a little more twist. The beginning partshould go for the catch, okay? First impressions are crucial.""But,"Asahina-san nervously said,"I thought that was how fairy tales are......""That mindset is obsolete!"Haruhi handed out the rejection with a thoroughly self-important air."The transformation of ideas is necessary. If you remember hearing this or that somewhere, think about the opposite first. Then you might just give birth to something new."
