getting published and American Idol

i was thinking last night...

the road to getting published is a lot like American .idol. the thousands of people who audition are like query letters, and only a few of those get chosen to move on. your query might turn into a partial request, aka going to hollywood. if your partial turns into a full, and you sign with an agent, you have made it through hollywood week. getting your book published is like making it to the top ten. you are in, but your not a superstar. winning American Idol is like having a book like Twilight or Harry Potter.
so, there you have it people- American Idol is a lot like trying to get published.
