Bloody Elbow has been around for a while now and much to my dismay, things aren't exactly organized as well as they could be in some areas. I'm one of those annoying people that has to have everything sorted and make sure that everything has a place, and unused drafts are outliers to me. I can't stand if I have one, and I have to delete it immediately if I'm not going to use it. Well, other BE staff members haven't exactly shown the same level of tidiness (I'm looking at you Brookhouse - 180. 180!), and there are scores of drafts sitting around that have never actually been converted into published work. I was given permission to feed my mild OCD and delete a bunch of them today, but I noticed something while I was going through them.
It turns out that some of them are pretty damn funny.
So, here is a quick list of some titles or excerpts from Bloody Elbow drafts that didn't quite make the cut. Some of these were already tweeted by Brent and I earlier today, but a lot of you don't use twitter so I figured a fanpost would be fun. These are from authors past and present, and I'm not going to name who wrote what because that would be tacky. I'm not trying to tease anyone with these, just provide some mild amusement for the evening. Check 'em after the jump, and stay tuned for part two in the near future.
