    couldn't help myself...

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by mammamaia, Nov 8, 2010.

    after years and years of helping aspiring writers on sites like this, i finally had to put into words what so often drives me to distraction and the involuntary issuance of cussin' that'd make a sailor blush... any of you know what i mean? ;-)

    I fell in love with that little poem. God, it good. Funny, short, well executed and well done. You are my new hero.

    I just write for the money, the fame, and the chicks. I don't really identify.

    Yes, indeed, if all my wishing were doing, I'd be up to a score on novels. Great verses.

    Hey Whiskey!-A tip-Cut your effort by 33%!!. Just concentrate on the money and fame. When you've built those up to eye level--"Surprise"!!--There'll be the Chicks. Also when it drains away the last one left is really worth having!.

    Thanks Ma--missed that. And my- Aaww- was tongue in cheek--doesn't everyone know some of those -of whom- you speak??.

    I write for the creepers, disturbing fans and rejection letters.

    Well, I have ten dollars in my bank account, I'm anonymous in my own hometown, and my thoughtful narrative pacing isn't quite the aphrodisiac I was led to believe it would be.

    Writing is hard. Maybe I'll try acting.

    If you don't have creepy fans, stalkers, and a heaving stack of rejection letters, you aren't trying hard enough.

    Oh, God, Cogito, I have actually seen copyright misspelled that way in the front pages of a small-press / vanity press novel. *headdesk*

    And the really horrible thing is that the story was good, it was just hard to see under all the frackin' homophone errors. *twitch* Oh, ow, must go have some water to get that memory out of my head.

    thanks, guy/gals!

    i'm gonna go get it copywritted right now, on one of those neat sights that do it for you... then i'm gonna let a reely good publisher have it so we can both make a lot of money and i'll be a famous author...

    hugs t'y'all, m
